I grew up drinking my share of kool~aid mostly grape and cherry....my kids had kool~aid, too. The grandkiddo's will I'm sure have their fair share, too. It comes in all kinds of flavors today.
Well I have been doing a LOT of punching lately and decided it was time to try dyeing wool yarn. So out with the crockpot and the kool~aid!
Wool waiting in a hot crock~pot.
Add a little wild berry and some citrac acid crystals to hold the color.
Let it dry on a HOT summer day in the shade...doesn't take long!
Wind into pretty yarn cakes....who doesn't like cake?????
Punch into a bright little house with flowers :)
Kool~Aid it's more than just a refreshing drink!
My niece Megan spent the day and I asked if she would like to learn to oxford punch and it took all of maybe 5 minutes and she had the punching down like a pro. She is now the proud owner of her very own handmade Spongebob Square Pants pillow made by her own hands!
