Kool Aid to the Rescue!

This yarn... I bought a long time ago. The picture I saw online didn't match what arrived in person. I just didn't care for the pastel on this yarn which takes color in a very earthy way. I tried selling it... for months... alas, no one else liked it this way either!



So I got a little Kool Aid and... did this!


And this week I made these.


Pretty cute huh?


They turned out a wee bit big. But that's just fine.
That means in February I won't have to add an inch!

Pattern: My own
Yarn: Briggs and Little, Cascade 220 trim
Needles: US 4, US 7
Ruffles: ala Sarah

Those are SO cute. Seriously. You gonna write up a pattern for them?

She is! I'm testing it (or at least, I'm supposed to be.. I haven't started anything with it yet, but I did at least print it out and read through it..)

I looooooove the way the colors came out on those - definitely a HUGE improvement over the original! (which I know I saw on FSOT, and passed over - if only I'd known what a little kool-aid would do for it! LOL!)
