Yarn dyeing session

I hadn’t dyed any yarn in ages, so the other day I got out the vinegar and kool-aid and dyed 100g to make a soaker for E.  The yarn is some stuff I got given by a secret santa, I have no idea what it is cos the label wasn’t in English but its really lovely and soft.  I used ice blue raspberry lemonade, grape and strawberry kool-aid, just one sachet of each because I wanted fairly soft colours.  And I diluted the grape and strawberry solutions even further.  I dye yarn in the microwave, with sections of yarn in big glass jars.   This is the result – I’ve already cast it on to start the soaker.  I think it looks better knitted than it does in the ball – I’ll have to take a pic of the wip tonight.
