Koolaid Dyed Yarn

I took a class recently where we learned a way to dye yarn using koolaid.  Then, when my parents visited last month, my dad picked out these colors and we dyed some yarn for my mom to knit.  Here are pictures from the process:

And, here is the finished yarn that we dyed.  This is Lion Brand Sock Ease (fingering weight) dyed with blue ice rasberry lemonade, lemon lime, and lemonade.

This is the yarn that I dyed in class.  The orange is Cascade 220 (worsted weight) dyed with orange and lemonade.  The pink is Cascade 220 Sport dyed with black cherry, cherry, and strawberry.  It was a lot of fun and I am really happy with the way they all turned out.
