Feeling Creative

So, I was feeling creative last night so I decided to dye some yarn. I had 5 skeins of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes and thought I would play around. Here is what I came up with:

Blue -- Creativity stopped before I could come up with cute names

2 packets of berry blue Jell-O, 1 cup vinegar, 5 cups water. Microwaved until water was clear.

I have been wanting pink and brown sock yarn FOREVER. So, thought maybe I could come up with a color option for myself. Not the best picture, the brown is actually more brown than it shows here.

Brown: 1 packet each of orange, grape, black cherry Kool Aid
Pink: half packet of cherry watered down
Microwaved until clear.

The "Italia" as my hubby calls it.

Pink: 1 packet of Strawberry Kiwi and Strawberry Jell-O
Green: 1 packet of lime Jell-O
Yellow: 1 packet of lemon Jell-O
Microwaved until mostly clear

It was fun and I managed to keep most of my kitchen clean and stain free except for a small patch of green on the kitchen rug. Oh well. As this was only the 2nd time I tried to dye, I think I am doing A-Ok.

Creativity stopped before I could come up with cute names, so can you help me name them?

They look fantastic!! I've got Kool-Aid packets & some bare Knit Picks myself hanging around to tackle one day, too. :D

On the blue - for some reason, 'Boo Berry' keeps sticking in my brain... which means you could always go with the cereal theme & name the 'Italia' 'Fruit Loops'... LOL!

That blue should be called "Breakfast at Tiffany's"!
