I spent a while this afternoon playing with Kool-Aid dyes and 3 skeins of sock yarn with my youngest DD. What better way to spend a half-term cloudy afternoon - creative, educational and yarny!
I let her choose the colours to be used and then showed her how to make them up into the dyes.
She came up with the first colourway - her favourite - a rainbow one of course.
Then we decided together how to use the remaining colours on the other 2 skeins of yarn. Here are the results:
This one is a gorgeous bright mix of red and orange, which hasn't shown up in the picture well at all - goodness knows why not.
Then this one which is the leftover blue, green and lemon.
