WIP: Dyeing lessons

I dyed my chunky baby alpaca yarn with koolaid. It was SUPPOSED to be orange and yellow alternating... That is NOT what happened. what happened was orange with white and a bit of yellow splotches. UGLY! I was unimpressed and unamused. So... Cherry Koolaid to the rescue? *shakes head* Really I don't know how on earth you can pour it on directly and fill the entire container with red and it STILL have white bits. BUT it looks a whole lot better! It is drying right now and you can't know the variations in color until it is dry, especially reds.

Excuse the poor picture but it is still wet and is drying my drying rack,
with my radiator behind it.
