So here we have the winner in the microwave before the any heating has taken place. I used the w@l-m@art brand Kewl-Aid in 'lemonade.'
|Ignore the gross uncleaned insides.|
Then after after one minute of nuking the water, drink mix and knitted square. You'll notice the water is slightly more clear. That's what you're going for with Kewl-Aid dyeing. You want devoid the water to of any color.
|I really should have cleaned my microwave before shooting photos.|
This is after two minutes and that's as clear as the water ever got. I nuked it a minute longer, but it never got any more transparent than this. I wonder if it as anything to do with the brand difference?
|You know this means that I will scrub the insides of the microwave tonight in preparation for the next photo shoot and it will be dirty all over again when I take the photos.|
And here's the final product wet blocking on my kitchen counter! Because things tend to look a little darker when wet, I believe that this will turn out a nice pale color yellow.
It will fit nicely into my rainbow collection of squares for the sock blanket, don't you think?
