Kool Aid Socks

Imagine that this one is bound off and partnered with another just like it!



These pink socks were knitted in k2p2 ribbing, toe up (short row heel) from knitpicks fingering weight color your own that I dyed using cherry and grape kool aid. I would've preferred slightly more vibrant colors – maybe next time.

Hopefully these will help keep my feet warm on the long cold trek to the office. And this means that I can FINALLY start a new pair of socks. I'm trying to resist, but I don't know how much longer I can fight off the jaywalker!

Nice kool aid job! Ahh just do it - breakdown and join the rest of us on our Jaywalker trek! It goes faster and is not as mind numbing as 2x2 rib.

They look great! And you know, for cold walks nothing beats a pair of legwarmers . . . Join the legwarmeralong!

You did NOT color those with Kool Aid...did you? Hahaha - how funny is that! There's a whole world out there I know nothing about....

Hey, great minds think alike! Hayden and I dyed some yarn with Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid last week, and it looks just like yours. And I think I'm going to use it to give in to the Jaywalker temptation. I don't have enough willpower not to.
