I also bought Harmony sock needles. I was pleasantly surprised to find 6 needles of each size, and 2 sizes of the 1's and 2's. The case is handy.
Back to the dyeing...I used more dye than I expected to and a few different kinds. I used blueberry tea, sugar free koolaid, plain koolaid, food coloring, and crystal light sugar free. I need to be more organized next time and buy enough of one kind of dye. It's more expensive than I thought. If only I could find the plain Kool Aid, ahhh.
