Playing with Dye Part I

My kids and I make and donate several hundred twine rosaries to the Rosary Army every year. We used to purchase colored twine, but lately, we’ve wanted more color, more varigated hues, more, well, WOW in our twine. Teen Daughter #2 also wanted something to do to fill these long, boring summer hours.
So I taught her how to use dye. This is her first effort, and I must admit to being very impressed with her eye for colors and blends. She even named them: Tongues of Fire (in honor of Pentecost), My Pink, Melon Blast, Mom’s Olive Green, PinkyBeige, I Want a Chihuahua.
Now she has aspirations of starting her own business dyeing and selling twine to other rosary knotters. After she paints her room.
