Last fall I won some beautiful sock weight yarn from Celestial Strings and I decided to turn one of the oh so soft skeins into a Christmas present for my son, Isaac. I knew he would love the dark greenish-blue tweed and I had recently seen some elf hats with earflaps that I thought he would look so handsome in.

I had been wanting to dye yarn with kool-aid for a while now so when one of the local craft shops had a sell on yarn I decided to buy 4 skeins of wool yarn to dye. I knew that I wanted to dye the yarn in a gradient from pink to blue to crochet into a shawl. I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to get started!
