Procure some Kool-aid. Be aware that the tropical punch Kool-aid is not blue; the blue packaged Kool-aid twist is the blue Kool-aid. And the two oranges are the same color, so you just need to choose one.
Procure some 100% wool yarn and untwist the skein. Then make sure both ends are tied (that’s what the pink yarn is for).
Now, here’s the tricky part. You’re going to be putting wool yarn in hot water and, because of that, you’re running the danger of felting. So, ALWAYS add your yarn to the hot water and do not move it around more than necessary. So, obviously, fill your sink with water as hot as you can stand, and put your yarn in it. Let it sit for fifteen or twenty minutes.
Meanwhile, put three packets of the same color Kool-aid into a cup of warm water to make some liquid dye. Note the microwave-friendly containers behind the mugs. For the dying stage, you want to keep things as wet as possible. So, next curl up one (or two) skeins in each container and…
Pour on your Kool-aid. You can also sprinkle on color as the inspiration strikes you. Keep in mind that, like traditional tie-dying, you’ll have a lot of white on the parts where the Kool-aid can’t reach.
Do up another batch as well. Cover both with plastic wrap. Put one in the microwave for two minutes. When it’s done, take it out and let it rest and put the other one in. In a good microwave, each batch should only take two two-minute cycles. You’re looking to see if the water is now clear. Once it is, your stuff is dyed.
Now, you’re going to fill up the other side of your sink with hot water and dump your yarn into it to get rid of any excess Kool-aid that might still be on the yarn.
Then you’re just going to hang them outside to dry.
Which may involve twisting your ankle on the root of the damn hackberry tree. In that case, you may have to go to more creative lengths to dry your yarn.
