For my special April Fool's Mystery Exchange buddy - Lisa!



Photo credit: knitty.com



I find it amazing how the pairings for swapping buddies happen. I thought they were totally random but now I know they can't be.

My April Fools Day Mystery Exchange buddy is from my hometown - Houston. My folks are still there and when they are not in Houston there are in Gold Hill which is right around the corner from my Valentine's Day Exchange buddy Amanda! Ohhhhh, goose bumps!

Anyway, Lisa strikes me as a person that like to try all sorts of new things! If you saw the answers to her questions you would see that there was nothing this woman didn't like and nothing she wasn't interested in trying out! I like people like Lisa.

So, in celebration of spring and of mysteries I am giving Lisa her own opportunity to Kool-Aid dye some wool for herself. Who knows how it will come out!!! (see there is a little mystery in knitting) And all of you can play along with the following Kool-Aid dyeing sites:


  • Here is a great step-by-step guide to Kool-Aid dying

  • And what is best about Barbara's site is she took the time to create and share a Kool-Aid sample chart so you can see the colors!

  • Knitty has a nice how-to and I am going to try her suggestion for putting the dye and wool in a ziplock bag and putting it in the sun like 'sun-tea' that would be great for camp!

  • Over at Monkeyknits Jen has some photos of the process in progress (I like pictures)

  • And Kiki has an interested method in her online descriptions


I hope you all get to give this a try, I know I will. Joan in our knit group is going to put together a little kool-aid party for us and I am dying for her to say when!

Wow! Thank you so much! I'm flattered that you have a post just for me. And I'd love to talk to you about Houston.

Sorry to disappoint you, but the swaps were not paired in any way except to make sure the same folk weren't swapping as last time! Cosmic maybe?

What a *fabulous* list of links - thanks so much for sharing them - do you mind if I talk about them on the next PointySticks podcast? (With credit to you, of course!) That would then be another Houston connection for you! ;-)
