Here is today's 400 yards of prepared wool and Kool Aid dyes ready for the 1st grade Sunday school class.
It's not a very good picture of it, but here is the wool after the kids dyed it today. It got a little muddied in the middle, but trust me when I say that it will look great once its dry. There are some really beautiful areas in it. The color is much richer than it is in the picture.
I read The Mitten Tree for the kids after they finished dyeing the wool and were eating a snack. I fits in with the Kool Aid dyeing, because it is about making something (mittens) out of wool and giving them to someone else. Three weeks / 3 skeins of the dyed wool is going to be auctioned to raise money for the church. Then the next 3 weeks / 3 skeins will be knit into prayer shawls to give to those who need one.
