Part of my lovely Mother's Day was trying my hand at dying yarn for the first time. It was so fun, and so easy that anyone could do it. Ellie enjoyed helping me gather up all the materials and get set up in the enclosed side yard, where the kids and dog couldn't bother the process. That space also let her look through the gate to watch me do the dying, but still be far enough away that there was no danger of her getting into anything.
I did two skeins of Knit Picks Bare sock yarn, and will have pictures to post soon. Ellie named both of them - one is "Blues" and one is "Fire."
It was a blast, truly. Messy but amazingly fun, and I kept going out to the garage to watch them dry.
