      Dyeing with KoolAid, by Kristi Porter, from knitty.com

    • SuZque

      I must confess to a feeling of postmodern nostalgia for what-never-was tinged with some sort of tweenage pop-icon fandom when I scoured the city's grocery stores in search of the elusive lemon-lime. I felt sheepish as a paid for my 16 gaily colored packets. And I felt giddy when I added water and the bright colors and fruity smells issued forth.

      Dye wool yarn with Kool Aid. A fun, fragrant project to do with kids you can trust to stay away from hot solutions and hot yarn. You can use food coloring instead of Kool Aid (but won't get the nice smell), and it also works on silk fabric.
