File that under duh.
I should have known, right? Kool-Aid smells sweet, and on a hot day, it is just irresistible for certain flying insects that appreciate sweet smells. I was dyeing the skein pictured above (3 packets Blastin' Berry, one packet Grape) in my large tea jar, just like before. For some reason, though, flies got into the jar. I always leave the flipper lid on top open just a little so the hot air doesn't just build up in the jar, and this is the only time I had flies get in. It was pretty gross, picking them out. I'm not too freaked out by it, since I'm making this project for me.
That's not to say I wouldn't make a project for someone else from yarn that had been dyed with flies and Kool-Aid.
I just wouldn't have blogged about it.
I'm already a Crazy Cat Lady. I don't think I want to be a Creepy Doll Collecting Lady, too.
Five seconds before I took the picture, Molly Cat was being cute. Soon as I picked up the camera, she rolled back over and sat up and gave me this nonchalant look.
