pictures! dyeing!

Let's see if Blogger will work this time!

First, Icarus

Sue Ann and I are thinking about getting together at her house next Saturday to experiment with some KoolAid dyeing. If you know us, and want to come "try-dyeing," let us know (preferrably let her know, since it's at her house). I think the plan is to have sort of a potluck, and also to have a bit of liquid courage there (read: adult beverages). I plan on trying some acid dyeing, as well, since I'll have to go down to HCW Thursday since they charged me for a ball of Kidsilk Night that didn't make it home with me, so I might be picking up some acid dye there. I'd like to try getting a color that isn't so uniform. Possibly a heathered color. Anyone have any tips?

Keep an eye on my blog, folks. In a week or so, I'll be having a contest. I haven't worked out the details, but it'll be great.

I am pretty sure Jody wants to come, too. That is good. I need more stuff to dye, though. Guess it will be Cascade. ZZZ

I also cleared the event with the family, so it won't be a surprise.
