The Next Mystery

The March installment for Janel Laidmen's Kniterati came out on Friday. In this mystery they are in a tree house high above the forest. So I tried to make my yarn like the forest. Lots of green with flecks of brown thrown in.
I used a lot of green food coloring. Then separately mixed one packet of cherry Kool Aid and one packet of Blue Berry Kool Aid and sprinkled this mess onto the yarn. It kind of made the entire thing darker as well as adding darker spots. You can't see the darker spots too much on the cake. I was too excited to start the pattern to remember to take a picture before I balled it up.
