8 Fun Ways to Dye Easter Eggs!

I tried a bunch of egg dyeing experiments, and in this video I'm showing the ones that worked best!



For the dye, I used a Paas kit that you can get at the grocery store. Each color of dye is a tablet that you dissolve in water and vinegar. Feel free to use food coloring or other types of dye, though!

Loom Knit Hat Tutorial!

New tutorial! Learn to create this hat with a round knitting loom!



This video shows how to loom knit a hat from start to finish. We'll go over the e-wrap/knit stitch and the purl stitch. Even if you are a beginner and have never knitted before, you can make this!

Making this was a throwback to elementary school where we used to make these hats all the time! I'm definitely not an expert on knitting, but I just had to show you this easy and fun way to knit a hat!


Materials:
The loom I used
The whole set of looms
Yarn


A written summary of this video:

•Alternate between knitting and purling each row until it reaches about 5 inches long. Bring first row up and put them back onto the pegs. Knit these together.

•Tie a knot to create a loop in a new color of yarn. Put this on first peg and wrap and knit this row.

•For the rest of the rows, follow the pattern of knitting 4 stitches, and purling 2, knit 4, purl 2. Continue until the hat is about 9 inches long.

•Cut the working yarn, leaving about a two foot tail. Run this yarn through each loop on each peg, and remove them from the pegs. Pull tight to gather the top together and tie some knots through the first loop to secure. Put leftover tail inside hat or weave through.
