Is this that skein of Atlantic you just posted about? Because if it is, it is GORGEOUS.

Ok I have a question about the kool-aid dyeing thing because I noticed you did it this way. Are you mixing colors by mixing packets of different colors together? Or do you brew up a cup of blue, a cup of light blue, a cup of red, a cup of purple and then throw some of the mixed water together?

Because I first mixed packets together but found I had really little control over color that way. It was just guessing. So when I mixed the dyes together it worked out better. Is that always going to be the case or should I try mixing powders some more?

I heart Cascade 220. I heart worsted weight socks. And I definitely heart heel flaps.

Laura, "Anonymous" is actually me. Blogger just decided to erase my identity. Thanks, Blogger!

Anyway, it wasn't a momentous comment, but I did want to set the record straight.
