HANDMADE KNITTING NEEDLES & HAND DYED YARNS
INTERMEDIATE 3-D ART
wood dowels, polymer clay, food colors & wool yarn
These 2nd year young ones are having way too much fun dyeing their skeins of wool yarn
with Wilton cake dyes.
I had them experiment first with very tiny skeins so they could adjust their colorways,
and then I gave them each a large hank of Bulky wool yarn
and away they went!
Above we have seniors Amber Wu and Kristine Luong,
and below senior Antoniette Jabat is working with that intense dark green color.
Above are seniors William Kim and Liana Chie taking the more cautious approach :)
The kids were also required to learn to use the Umbrella Swift and Ball Winder
so that when their gorgeous yarns were dry they could turn them into center pull balls.
By the way,
the cutie patootie on the far right is junior Shreya Sheth.
Here is the group shot below of all their hard work.
I'm so proud of them.
And what a great way to start the new school year :)

Wait till you see what they are making with their beautiful yarns and needles.
