Project Pumpkin Pants

It started out as a skein of plain Aryan wool. I poured a dash of vinegar into the bathroom sink, then added orange flavored kool-aid (1 packet unsweetened) and enough water to cover the whole skein. It resulted in a very pale orange yarn. Then I repeated the process using 1 packet of black cherry flavored kool-aid, and this helped to darken the orange a bit more.  After it dried I had a nice variegated peachy orange color.    And now we have a new pair of longies for the baby.   The longies are knit in the round from the top down. The body of the pants were knit on circular needles, and then the legs were knit on double point needles.
