A few weeks ago my daughter and I dyed up about 4lbs of Huacaya fiber using Kool Aid. She wanted to help dye and I didn't want her using the acid dyes. I also am still unsure of myself when it comes to natural dyes so we went crazy with Kool Aid. She has seen me at work so much that she pretty much drove the mission and what we ended up with was beautiful pastel colors.
Any time Sister Bear wants to help with my fiber, I always find ways to help. I want to encourage her to learn and find her own passions. They might not be the same as mine but giving her the opportunity to figure that out herself is better than never having the opportunity at all. I often wonder if my mother had encouraged me to crochet or knit when I was younger (and expressed an interest) what I would be doing now? That's all in the past and I'm just thankful that a few years ago I had a friend who had a friend who handed me a ball of yarn and two knitting needles and said, "You're a Knitter!" because that did change the course of my life.
