My First Dye Job

Here's my very first attempt at dying wool yarn. It's Fishermen's Wool dyed with Kool Aid. I think I used too little Kool Aid. This is 3 oz. of wool, and I used just one packet each of Berry Blue and Lemon Lime. It's actually a little brighter than how it shows up in the pic, but not a ton.

Meh. I think I can do better. It'll be fun to knit or crochet it up and see what it looks like though.

I like these colors and think they are plenty bright, but then, I am getting to be an old lady now.

I never judge a dye job until it's knit up as they will always surprise you!

Oooh! Nice colors! Love the longies so much too!!

Thanks for the input on the baby food jars. I've been using ball jars for freezing because the small-sized jars weren't practical, but I really appreciate the feedback. Do you have any idea why using the baby food jars is bad? Is it the lids? I just can't seem to find any information on this....
Thanks again!
