Merino on KoolAid


Spinner/Knitter: Peggy
Fiber: 100% Merino top, some wonderfulness that we talked our buddy Sandi into sharing. We got together with good friends back in March for a pot luck and many hours of dying. We used Mother McKenzies Miracle Dye for some wool and KoolAid for others.
Project notes: Space-dyed with KoolAid and then separated down the middle and spun. The single was chained in order to keep long color runs and BONUS: the socks match so well and it must have been totally great dying/spinning/knitting MoJo! The pattern is just basic stockinette with the picot top.

Peggy, those are absolutely gorgeous! Most of the Koolaid stuff I've seen is just insipid. This is wowsers. Great job on the plying too. And of course, the spinning too. Makes me want to spin. Whoops, stop me MaryB!

Such perfectly spun yarn! The socks are great, they'll keep your feet toasty and stylin' at the same time.
