I need to do less things that are secret. Right now I am doing some contract work so I can’t show any pictures of that. And I’m working on designs that will be submitted to magazines (print & online) so I can’t show those either. Hey, I can show you a dyeing picture. Results that I’m really happy with:
The good news is that I consider this yarn pretty close to perfect. I wanted a rich semi-solid scarlet color and I got it. The bad news is that I doubt I could ever recreate these results. The dyepot foamed. And the dyes split and looked at me with bonafide crazy eyes. I had to put a plate into the dyepot to keep the yarn from rising above the foam. It was insane. And this was base yarn and dyes I’ve used before. And I can find no logical explanation for the foaming dyepot. But hey, it’s pretty, yes?
In other news, everybody wants to be naked and famous. (That’s a really great song by the Presidents of the United States of America, so get your mind out of the gutter.) But someone I know and love is on the road to fame and fortune and taking over the fibery world. She is easiest the most creative person I know. And her stuff is in Knitscene this month!!!
In other news, I am crazy. I have overextended myself in ways that should not be humanly possible. Like I don’t need a clone, I need about five clones to get it all done on time. I’m thinking sleep is overrated, yes?
