Another of my daughter's very cool Christmas gifts
was sent to her from my mother in law. They sent her a yarn dying kit
for kids. Oh my, did she ever have fun with that! Yarn dying is
something we definitely want to do again. I didn't help her much (only with the heating, really)
but it was certainly fun to watch the process and especially to see her
get so excited about the project. She hasn't knit the yarn yet, but
I'll be sure to post a picture when she does. (the picture of the yarn was taken before she had added all of the colors. It looks much like a ball of rainbow now that it is finished.)
In addition to this yarn dying kit, they sent each girl a poncho my MIL had made, a hand art book for the three-year-old, a tiara making kit for the six-year-old and for the eight-year-old there was a Disney Princess learning to crochet kit. A final gift for all four girls was a craft bag with knitting needles, children's cookbooks, children's sewing project kits and other craft items. They really had the girls pegged!
Oh and one other thing, I put up the pattern for my cable socks here.
