Problems, problems, problems

First off, my humblest apologies to Karrie. I meant to post this on the weekend, but lots of things got in the way, one of which I’m about to fix. So, here’s the results of Kool-Aid on a hemp-merino blend:

As usual, there’s a bigger version over at Flickr (see sidebar).

There were some serious issues with the plying once it hit the dyepot, as you can see. It was a lot neater before. The hemp also grew after the dyebath – both plys were the same size when they were singles. Hemp bleaches, apparently, with Kool-Aid. I have no idea what I’m going to do with this; it’s soft, but there’s not much of it.
