Aww, those are adorable. So "little boy." I took a look at your blog and love your knitted stuff... I'd never thought of using kool-aid to dye things before. Have you noticed if it fade after a while?

Thanks for the comments And Kool Aid is very colorfast on silk and any animal fiber, it is not a good dye for cotton though. You can also just use food coloring, but you have to use some vinegar to get it to really take (depending on the wool, sometimes you need vinegar with Kool Aid as well).
