Childs play

My then 11 year old daughter had also caught the spinning bug and managed to spin up the following batch
of very useable though a bit uneven yarn.

Ofcourse the idea of dyeing it was the next step and a plan was thought upto create a rainbow dyed end result.

We used jaquard dyes (acid dyes) and she applied them carefully.

Neat packages of yarn and dye wrapped in gladwrap

then each in a plastic shopping bag into the big pot to boil for 45 min turning them 3 times.

Hot hot hot, out of the pot

Look at it!

So neat and bright!

A beany was knitted

And the girl is proud.
