Oops

If I may be so bold as to give everyone some advice...

When dyeing yarn, wear gloves. Don't get so carried away that you think it doesn't matter. Kool aid is pretty potent *laughs*

  4. I thought you had had some kind of horrific incident, you look like you could be on a casualty episode, glad it will wash off in time!

  5. Yes, yes I knew this. In middle school there was a little fad to mix koolaid and sugar together to make a sort of "fun dip" type candy. Everyone's hands were purple/red/green. I sure am glad I have seen the light on food and food like substances :-)

  7. I never remember to wear gloves when I dye with food dyes---luckily, it washes off uh. Well, semi quickly. (Also, I can't wait to see the stuff you dyed that wasn't your hand!)

  10. Lovely shade! Does it smell like Kool Aid too? The yarn I dyed with Kool Aid months ago still has that yummy grape scent. I can't wait to see your yarn!
