We made our first foray

into handpainting yarn:





"We" is me and my five year old daughter -- her skein is the second one, decidedly more attractive than mine. But she got to start with nice, natural colored yarn, whereas mine was a very dull, earthy, gray-brown to begin with. It's even uglier in person, trust me. But it was soooooo fun...can't wait for my undyed heavenly-soft merino to come from the yarn co-op!

Hey, I like the darker of the two! I've never been much of a pastel person
