that was pretty cool, but i don't think we had enough for more than a few shirts here this winter.
i want to look at some of the other ones too, always interested in new ways of doing things.
i was reading one where they used chem lab pippets to drip patterns

these are nice, but with 50 or 60 small pieces to dye at a time, it could really take me a long time.
i might take one of the l/s adult shirts this time, or do a few one offs but we'll have to see.
i'm already 5 months late with this batch.
all of those n/b + 3-6mos will have to go to other kids than they were planned for in the first place.

including the soak, about 3 hours, but part of that was mixing the dyes.
if they come out nice they will get donated to the Jammin for Brianne event.
new tieing patterns, so you never know.
the kid and baby clothes take much less time
ok, i will know by Thursday night, but not until then.

How long will that take?
50-60 shirts, mostly kids size, a couple of nights or one good weekend
i've found it's easier for me to tie them all , then dye them all vs tie & dye each one separate.
i might forget a tieing pattern or 4, but they always turn out OK.
OK enought to be given away.
the more i have finished on the same day, the less i spend on rewashing them a couple of times.
