Knitting: More Dyed Socks for Lesotho

I made some more socks for Lesotho! I found a sweater (to unravel) with the perfect blend of wool and nylon, so I've been working on lots of socks for cold little feet.

These socks are so quick and fun that it's really hard to stop at just one. I used the (free) Kid Socks 32 pattern for these, and it was so quick and easy that I had the pattern memorized after making this one pair.

Since yellow isn't very conducive to keeping socks clean-looking for longer periods, I overdyed these with 2 packets of Cherry Kool-Aid. The end result was perfect!

Wow, that cherry Kool-aid really changed the looks of these! Love it!
