Plant dyed hand knit socks

Here is the latest and the greatest from my last teacher training 

Its wonderful to spend time with people that share the same intrest and that are really really funny!!  This is what we did in one of the classes for the first week.  More to come.

Here's to a hearty laugh.

Dye Garden

Cochineal with Madder to get that deep red.


Look what we dyed!!

Look at the selection we get to choose from as well as what we dyed.


Most of us finished the first week and some of us (me) we were the proud owners of our first pair of socks from scratch.  I'm the brown ones in the middle. Oh happy day.
