Dyeing Easter Eggs, 2010 Edition

On Saturday evening, Genny, Abigail and I had our annual egg-dyeing party. Rebecca and Katherine were both out, so it was just the three of us. We decided to try a new technique that a friend of mine mentioned on facebook - tie-dyeing eggs with old silk neckties. We started with unboiled eggs...
...wrapped them up in 100% silk neck ties and white cloth...

...boiled them for 20 minutes...
...and unwrapped them to reveal masterpieces!
Here are a few pics of the ties along with their respective eggs:

While the silk-tied eggs were boiling, we did some more traditional eggs. We always come up with some really creative eggs, using various crayons, double-dipping eggs, and just having lots of fun.
Here are some pics of my favorite eggs from the night:
