Voila

I love, love, love to see the finished projects made from yarn I dyed. This beautiful scarf was made recently by someone who has just recently learned how to crochet. Isn't this stunning?






it was made from this yummy, soft yarn i dyed last winter. the blank yarn is brown sheep lanaloft, and it is a dream to work with.

On the needles

Yesterday I began a project. Instead of finishing one of any number of lonely cast offs still on the needles, I started something new. This one is the Bob sweater (Bob stands for button-on-blanket) and I hope it knits up fast. I have exactly one week until my anatomy class begins and it's always fun to reference a particular time in your life to what knitting you we're doing at the time. Given my track record it is unlikely that I will finish this before the class ends, but it's a reasonable goal. I love the color of this yarn.  It's different from most greens. It reminds me of moss or really intense algae. I'll try to post a progress report at the end of my last week of 'freedom."

back in the game

my chemistry class from hell is history and i'm eager to get back to the yarn and dye. this week i'll be updating the shop and cranking up the dye pot. until then, here's a little sheep-flavored eye candy.
