My husband has been home on vacation on all week, while I’ve been working at the yarnstore. Somethings are hard to find.
Like camera batteries. And all of my comfy undies. This is *not* because he’s done something odd with them. (I hope). This is because he has decided to be helpful and put things away for me.
I started my tilted duster in the red mahogany malabrigo. I have a very cute picture of strongman modeling the now-seamed back and fronts. I can’t upload it due to lack o’ batteries. Same with the picture of the red yarn I kool-aid dyed this evening.
Strange thing, this kool-aid business. I’ve done it before. And the package per ounce thing worked fine. I dyed 100g or roughly 3.5 ounces of yarn. I used SEVEN packets of red kool-aid. There are *still* unsaturated places. I started with 3 packets and added 4 more. I can’t stomach the idea of going back to Publix yet again.
My cherry red Katherine Hepburn cardigan is stalled. I made some mistakes in the sleeve increases. So I kind of need a do-over. And I haven’t the heart to rip it out. Yet.
I also spiffed up a totally cute hat in some pink lemonade colored poems. Only seven more hats to go. Yes, seven. Don’t ask.
