Yarn it all

I recently tried my hand at dyeing yarn for the first time.  I wanted to make duck feet for Sadie's costume but had no yellow yarn the right size.  I did, however, have yellow food coloring and an old skein of white yarn.  The transformation was so satisfying, I knew it would be something the kids would enjoy.

With the long weekend in mind, I bought several packets of Kool-Aid.   Each of the boys picked 2 different colors, Ethan found directions for dyeing on Knitty and we were off.  Some of the process in pictures, both low and high resolution:
