We had a spontaneous girl’s night in my new yarn studio. Lauren and Lindy came over to hang out and we painted our first skeins of yarn in the studio! Lauren knits and crochets and has a love for yarn. Lindy now has an appreciation for the art of hand-dyed yarn! (She is an amazing artist! I hope this reawakens a spark of creativity for her!). Lindy was pretty surprised at how much fun she had. She is really good with watercolors, so I can see why she loved this so much.
Look how proud she is!
We were playing.
We can’t forget Max! He is still helping me pose my yarn!
We ended our night eating Mexican bowls at Fuzzy’s along with a margarita. It was a great spontaneous night with my girls. We all had a great time. The girls were tickled pink with their own creations and are eager to cast-on.
On a side note – this would be a great craft to do with your kids. The math you use is ratio and proportion and would be a great lesson to teach the kids. They can see math used in a fun creative way. You need to figure how much dye to use per weight of yarn. You can also teach fractions with diluting colors. Just an idea 🙂
Happy Knitting Friends!
