Yarn Dying Extravaganza!

Last Sunday & Monday while Kyle was in Iowa zipping around a racetrack on his shiny green ZX-10, the girls & I dyed yarn! We had a great time as the photos show. Megan chose the front end of the rainbow with red, orange & yellow while Jessica went for the end of the rainbow choosing green, blue & purple. The first attempt with grape Kool-Aid resulted in a muddy skein of yarn so we tried over with egg dye and achieved a much better result. They both decided all they wanted to do with the yarn was make yarn balls so we spent a good part of Monday afternoon winding by hand. I think they enjoyed it!
My creation
The photos in the mosaic ended up backwards in the layout so the process starts on the bottom right.
