Kool-Aid Yarn


We cleaned out our storage room a few weeks ago and found a gem.

On a way high up shelf, way in the back we found a mason jar with some yarn in it. It brought back some memories.

A few years ago, we did some kool-aid yarn dyeing classes with kids…

Our long lost mason jar must have gotten lost in the shuffle.

Anyway, it turns out that leaving a skein of yarn in a mason jar, on it’s side, with a package of cherry flavored kool-aid and water for 2 years is a good thing.

This is a pretty skein of yarn, even if it smells like cherries:)

    Don’t you just love discovering “buried” treasures. 😉
    Maybe there’s a hidden market out there for scented yarn????

    What a fun project. I think it would be fun to do at the cabin this summer with the grandkids, then we can knit with it in the fall!
