1. you really want to be careful about laying the silk as close to the egg as possible - otherwise there are white patches on the eggs.
2. the white outside cloth is really important. I almost didn't do it, but some of these very colorful ties bleed ink into the boiling water and I think the white fabric helped to prevent that some.
3. boil in batches if possible - the red tie, for example, turned the water super red. I think it ended up turning some o the ends a little pinker, so beware.
Now, just a lot of pictures!
