This week was the start of a new
obsession skill, learning to dye yarn. I’ve got nothing but “new mom” pride for this silly little skein of yarn, my first go at hand painting yarn. In my eyes, it is perfect and beautiful and can do no wrong. Someday it may even grow up to be a pretty hat to brighten up the cold, gray winters. And dyeing it was so much fun. I am seriously having to stop myself from dyeing any and all yarn in my stash left over from previous products. It’s helping that I may have used up all my food coloring this past weekend. But I do need to stop at the grocery store on my way home from work tonight for some milk, so while I’m there….
What else is going on this week?
Knitting: Still working on my Belgravia tee, which is making progress. I’m almost done with the front and I am really loving how it is looking so far. I also cast on another pair of socks. This time I’m working the herringbone rib socks in SweetGeorgia tough love sock yarn I picked up at the Knitter’s Frolic.
Reading: Still working on Daughter of Smoke and Bone – about half way through now. And I’ve been doing a lot of reading up on different yarn dyeing techniques (see, it’s taken over!).
Listening: While commuting and working in the lab, I’ve been listening to Royal Assassin as an audio book downloaded from my local library. I love the downloadable books most libraries have available now, though it does mean I usually only go to the physical library to renew my card, which is a little sad.
Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.
