When we went out the other day, I carefully took pictures of a number of yellow and orange things, so now I have a stash of them! Since present knitting is not at all yellow or orange, I'll need some backup, and I can leak these as necessary!
I did get the kids some orange (and pink and blue) felt for making puppets with, and that's where this pic came from.
One of the things on our shopping list was white eggs, because we want to colour them for Easter. Our milkman delivers brown eggs, and 98.6% of the eggs in the shops are brown. Or is it 99.9%? Anyways, we couldn't find white eggs. But we did find lovely blue-y greeny eggs! They are called Cotswold Legbar eggs. Quite beautiful to look at, and since the hens are lovingly looked after and, according to the box, "free to range and forage on green pasture from dawn to dusk," the eggs are tasty as heck, too. The box also tells us stuff like this: They have "everything that a normal healthy hen requires for its freedom of expression and fullness of life." Arthur asked what freedom of expression meant, so we said these hens could read or write whatever books they liked and make any kind of artwork they wanted, and no one would tell them not to. So there.
Now we just need to find the little egg-dyeing kits. Perhaps if there are no white eggs, that would explain the lack of egg dyes in the shops!
