purple yarn

I took two skeins of light grey wool yarn that had been in my bins, unloved, for  who knows how long (years?) and dyed them with purple (grape) kool aid!  Super fun!  I used the same method described here (the one with the blues and the crock pot about 3/4 of the way down the page).  My results were less dramatic than hers, I think due to the fact that that I started with a gray base and not a white/natural base and that grape kool aid is not as dramatic as blue Wilton's dye.  I got a nice semi-solid, though, and I really like it!  Much better than the boring gray at any rate.
