No Joke.

Today we did this.


With her. Seriously.


I mean, if you're going to learn to dye yarn for the first time, who else would you want to learn from?! And what other yarn would you want to use?!!

Tina just experimenting!
The above picture is Tina's yarn. Go check out CheekyAttitude's awesome pictures of the process!

The one below is my first skein of yarn that I ever dyed.

I made that!

I think I'm hooked.

Today was a good day. I'll admit, it was a freaking fabulous day!

Oh, and since tomorrow I'll still be at camp, and Lil' Guy will be celebrating his 2nd birthday...

Happy Birthday Lil' Guy!

Happy Birthday Lil' Guy!!!

Happy Camping!!

Did you try and recreate that rare gem yourself? Looks great!

Disco said...

Is Tina out of her mind? Teaching her best customers how to dye their own?!!!!!

And look at your very own pink and brown creation - delicious :0)

Happy Birthday Lil Guy :0)

Wow. Squee with awe. How lucky are you? Can't wait to see that yarn all dry and pretty.

Rani said...

Oh! I love the colors you chose. What a very cool sock-camp project. It's like Campfire camp when we did our tie-dye t-shirts.

Happy B-day Lil Guy.

Lil guy is adorable (don't tell him I said so...).

Jolynn said...

Ooh! That looks like fun! I have a couple of blank skeins, but I haven't yet had the courage/researched the technique.
