When things slow down a little bit at work I feel more inspired to do fun stuff like dye my yarn.  The safest and most fun method of dying is Kool-aid.  If you can drink it, surely it is safe to dye with.   

 I was trying to do a blue/green combo but my mind always says, "PINK! PINK!" so  threw in a little of that, too.
You need to be open minded to what you will end up with since dyeing can take a direction all it's own.  And since you can't 'erase' it and start over, it's just best to embrace the end product.  This hank sort of reminded me of confetti.   I love it.
These are ponytail holders embelished with cotton yarn and angora yarn.  The top left hairband and top right are done using the confetti hank.  These are quick little projects that can be completed in a matter of minutes.
