Easter Weekend

Easter weekend was very fun for us. We joined a gym and got started  learning our way around the place. On Saturday we dyed eggs with the kids and I just couldn't let the leftover dye go to waste. So I grabbed some wool and a handful at a time I used up the rest of the dyes. I did manage to burn myself rather well with some boiling water, but in the end I got a wonderful pastel rainbow of wool. I still need to process it and spin it but for now it is pretty to look at just as is. We had dinner in with good friends and opened a lovely bottle of wine.
Sunday we got up to see that the Easter Bunny remembered us and we ate our dyed eggs. Later we headed to brunch with Ron and Julie and then came back to our house for a visit. While the kids were resting Brian got to play his video game and I finished up some spinning. Overall I think everyone had a pretty good weekend.

Good use of the dye! What dye did you use? Sounds like a lovely Easter weekend.

nice! Are you going to spin it keeping the colors intact or do a more mix/match approach?

Claire - I used Easter Egg Dyes left over from the kids dyeing eggs.

luneray - I am not sure yet what I am going to do...I like the idea of having a fair isle kit ready to go but I also like the idea of a Kauni type color shifting yarn too...I'll decide after I get each color carded up into it's own little batt. Oh...and we should have a knitting date soon!

You crack me up of course you would find something to do with it. The wool looks fab!

I can't wait to see what you make!
