My Kool-aid dyed May socks

These are my socks for May. It was the first time I ever dyed my own wool. I used Knit Picks Superwash (75% wool, 25% nylon, I think) and dyed them with Cherry and Pink Lemonade Kool-aid in the microwave. Aren't they wild?? It's a plain stockinette sock . I can't wait to dye again!!
Congratulations Chrissy for the Rockin' Sock Club pattern this month....it's gorgeous!!

Your Kool-aid dyed socks are just awesome! I've bought the same yarn, but haven't dyed it yet [a vacation project for the end of the month.] Can't wait to do it. Sounds like fun!

You did great! I Kool-Aid dyed twice, and both were flops. I really love how yours turned out!

I love how your stripes came out! I need to dig out the microwave to try this. Great color choices too:)
