A few months ago my good friend Andrea wrote a post about wanting to dye playsilks. I’ve always been enamored by playsilks, but a little put off by the price ($12 each, really?!). So, one afternoon we got together and dyed up a few with some kool-aid.
And now I know why I’d always been so enamored with them. They are just the best! Ewan comes up with all sorts of ways to play with them, although his favorite has to be “ghost Ewan.” He puts the silk over his head and chases us around. The silk is just transparent enough that he can avoid major obstacles and he usually ends up in fits of giggles when we find him or he finds us. I’m eager to see the many other ways that he ends up using them in the future, the possibilities are endless.
