Så er det nok ikke så slemt.... / I guess it's not that bad......
Da vi kom, var bordet fyldt med garn og farver og ting, og tænk engang - der var også masser af garn til os gæster!
Yesterday, I went to my sweet friend Johanne's birthday. She is turning 50. When you get that old, you can celebrate exactly like you want to, and it turned out to be the most amazing YARN birthday!
When we arrived, the table was filled with yarn and dye and stuff, and can you imagine - there was plenty of yarn for we guests as well!
We tried different techniques. For instance yarn in jars with color which were cooked over water. It was fun - especially those skeins ending up in 2 different jars with 2 colors. Or the sock yarn blanket in a jar.
Vi farvede også noget som lå på bordet og fik farven dryppet på og bagefter dampfikseret i husholdningsfilm.
Johanne is quite skilled in dyeing yarn, and bought a giant kettle that stands in the garden and holds a LOT. So we dyed yarn that had different shades before the dye.
We also dyed yarn lying on the table, dripping on the dye, and afterwards steam-fixated in Vita-wrap.
Alt i alt en helt vildt hyggelig dag, og hvis det er sådan at fylde 50, så er det jo egentlig ikke så slemt......
Nu venter jeg bare spændt på at mit garn tørrer!
We had lots and lots of food, and we spent a few hours unwinding this pile!
It was a totally nice day, and if turning 50 is like this, then I guess it's not bad at all......
Now I'm just waiting for my yarn to dry!
