If the henna dries too fast, it might not stain.  The key is to keep it warm and slightly moist!  Adding oil or artificial sweetener to your paste can help this, or you can wrap the design with a bandage for a few hours.

Or the henna might have been old/expired... if you don't keep it frozen, sealed, and dark, powder only stays fresh a few weeks (only a few days for paste).

Tetris, pretty colors, and (of course) lots of knitting!
