We had such a blast today at camp!!  First we started out with our knitting and made great progress on our projects.

We took a small snack break at the half way point.

And of course the chicks had to come out to play!  After our short break we went straight out to prepare our yarn for dyeing.

Should we gently set our yarn in the water, or should we just drop it in?

They carefully spoon dye onto the yarn in the places that they want it.  Notice the ultra snazzy aprons they are wearing to protect their clothes!IMG_2496

After dyeing yarn, the campers worked more on their pin weaving and on their knitting.  Tomorrow should see some completed projects!
