Dye Day Creations

So we had our annual knit group Dye Day at Christy's house.
It starts out all normal and calm.
There is the potluck food - wonderful as always ladies!
Video games, music, knitting, etc
We dye yarn, fiber, and some sock blanks.

I dyed some cotton placemats and a couple of the girls did T-shirts.

Then, I think one of my blanks is just way too boring. But I was out of ideas on how to spice it up. So I told Christy to just do her thing with it. I said, just do what you want. So she starts to paint a picture on it with some dye and an eye dropper. Looked what the result was...FANTASTIC!

After the butterfly, we were having so much fun with this technique, she did a dragonfly...

It was too much fun!
One of the best Dye Days ever!
The creative juices were flowing!
I saw a true artist at work!
It was AMAZING!!!
WOW, can hardly wait to knit up the butterfly!!!
It will be a one-of-a-kind pair of socks that is for sure!

What great creations, almost a shame to frog it up to knit.

The resulting socks will be fantastic though and I will look for those pictures in the future.
