If there is a certain scent that will remind Johanne of 2006 it´s Koolaid.
As a child she helped her mother to dye yarn using birch leaves and such.
But she has to confess it was a lot more fun using a hundred percent artificial substances.
The whole family participated.
And when Ludvig exclaimed that he´d painted his lips, too,
Johanne was awfully glad that they were using non-toxic dye
that you´re actually meant to drink. Ludvig escaped unharmed.
Dyeing yarn was so much fun that Johanne seriously considered chucking in her day job.
But she realized she really does need it to keep her in yarn.
Elise helped her wind the yarn.
And these are Elise´s Koolaid socks.
They still have that artificial scent because Elise hasn´t used them yet.
Johanne was amazed by the "expert" dye job. Is she perhaps a natural born dyer?
Surely it couldn´t be sheer luck...
All in all that was the most memorable day in 2006.
Johanne would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Wendy who
acted as dealer kindly sent her the Koolaid.
Let´s hope for just as much fun in the year to come.
GOTT NYTT ÅR!
