I took the opportunity to show my daughter how to dye since she couldn't remember watching previously (has it really been that long?).
I was only dyeing one colour, so we mixed up my super secret (no one has asked!) recipe for my fave dark red. My rule-following daughter was very concerned about the hazards of working with the dyes and kept her gloves and mask on long after she needed to. So sweet.
I think this was the first use of the electric frying pan - a bit too much wool for its capacity, but by taking care when stirring it worked out okay.
Our finished project is drying on the deck. Hooking begins on Monday!
