Artisans at work

As mentioned earlier, Mom let the girls loose in the studio last week.  It's something we've let them do on almost every visit, and they absolutely love it. Dyeing yarn is so much fun for kids, and after taking the proper precautions (old clothes, drop clothes, aprons and gloves) not a whole lot can go wrong.

And as I said - it's old hat for this pair
It's fun to see what they come up with though, because they are even more willing to experiment than Mom and I.
 This time around, they did up some Twinkle Cat
 ... and some Fat Cat....
They kept a couple skeins for themselves (apparently their Mom now has some slippers to make!), but the rest have gone up in the shop. Each one of these are one-of-a-kind, never-to-be-repeated colourways, so once they are gone, they are gone. Word has it, they also signed the labels of their masterpieces, so you knitters can purchase a true work of art!

Dyeing talent must run in your family. Those are some gorgeous skeins!

That's it - teach them when they are young! Excellent job. The skeins are lovely.
