Black Cherry Yarn

Labor Day weekend gave me a little extra time and I used it to wind off half an 880-yard hank of KnitPicks bare laceweight and dye it with some Black Cherry Kool-Aid. Well, actually I used something called Disney Splashers. I went Kool-Aid shopping just when school ended and there seemed to have been a run on Kool-Aid out here in the 'burbs.

The yarn dyed nicely, if somewhat unevenly, but I'm quite happy with the results (used 6 packages). The variation in color in spots to a darker, blacker black cherry and back just adds a bit of depth to me.

I'm looking forward to casting on soon for an Evelyn Clark knitted triangle. That's about $2.75 worth of 'ingredients' up there which sooooo justifies my pattern book purchase, don't ya think?

The yarn looks tasty enough to drink!
