This is bad, very, very bad. If you have done any research on this you already know that. If you haven't do a search and you will be surprised by the results. This is the craziest education system ever, it has been called fuzzy to just plain insane. Created to make "Standards" for our children to make them more College and Globally Employment Ready but yet there are no "Standards for the "Standards" as stated below.
There are several key issues that the Common Core State Standards do not define. They do not identify how teachers should teach. They also do not limit or list all that can or should be taught. There is no limiting factor placed on the nature of advanced work beyond the CCSS. There is nothing in the CCSS that indicates the interventions needed for students well below grade level or the support that should be given to English language learners and students with special needs. Finally, they do not provide everything needed to be college and career ready.
I would love to hear others comments regarding this matter...
Thank you so much

We're still using food coloring and / or kool aid for this technique. I did use both for these batches. First you will need to let your wool soak in your vinegar water solution for about 30 minutes or more is okay. Pick out the colors you would like to use and as before mix each with your water and vinegar solution. You may need to pour off a bit of the liquid in your pan before you add your colors. To much liquid everything can turn to mud as to much liquid will cause your colors to bleed into one another too much. Don't panic, you will be fine. Heat up your wool so that it is hot but not boiling. Now your ready to pour your colors into the kettle / pan. Let it simmer uncovered, remembering not to let it boil for about 30 minutes. This technique gives you the ability to dye more wool at once than our previous techniques.

Well, some of it went here. I've been crocheting lots of these little Basket Bowls.
Oh and something new for me...
I totally fell in love with this!!
I have been Hand Dyeing my own buttons for my Etsy Shop!!
Oh yeah, did I mention buttons!!
Buttons, buttons and more BUTTONS, lol!!!
Believe it or not, hanging my head in shame here....
All of these buttons are from my own PERSONAL STASH, yes....
and of coarse I have more, ummmm, a few food storage bags full, a small sandwich bag, a canning jar and two 5 gallon ice cream buckets full, well you never know what one your gonna need when your making crocheted decorative pot holders... I love buttons, I have since I was a kid. I loved to play with Grandma's Button Tin, ooooooooo...My grand kids take right after their grammy, they have a great big bowl of buttons sitting on the coffee table here that they love to play with.
Okay, can we say I have a real crafting problem..
