Hey, Kool-Aid!

Only a big red pitcher didn't come crashing through my walls this weekend. No, no. I did this on Sunday. koolaid dyeing 006 Finally! I've had the yarn and the koolaid to do it with for months now. So, what went into that beautimous limey color? 5 packets of Lemon-Lime Kool-aid for starters. That gave me this (pardon the sauce splatters) koolaid dyeing 001 And of course, because I love y'all, a close up. koolaid dyeing 003 Not satisfied with the shade, I got experimental. I broke out one packet of Berry Blue and 2 packets of Lemonade. That gave me this: koolaid dyeing 004 Subtle, yet more satisfying that way. And thus ends the great koolaid dyeing adventure of Sunday the 14th. So, my friends, how goes the internet dating thing so far? Well, I've exchanged numerous e-mails with one guy that seems very nice, funny, and promising. He doesn't live in town, but is moving here from north of the city in September. Perfect for babystepping into a possible relationship. Then there's the engineer guy I've exchanged e-mails with. After a week of being out of town on business, he's catching back up at work and perhaps we'll meet up later this week. Then there's a couple other guys I've e-mailed, but nothing fantabulous yet. Mr Walmart harddrive thing will not be getting an e-mail back from me. That story is just a bit too hokey for me believe.

Hi! I posted the link on my blog to Knitting Crazy Cat Ladies forever ago, when you commented on my blog. I still haven't been added to the ring, though. I was wondering if I did something wrong, or if you just forgot, or what?

Have a good day!

Great color! I don't blame you about the Wal-mart guy, he sounded like a weirdo.

I love the color - it looks like you had a fun time with it - can't wait to see how you knit it up. :)

You make me want to get up and dye my yarn *sigh*

Good luck with the dating thing. My aunt met a great guy thru match.com and they've been together for like 3 years now :)
