I should ask other dyers this question. Do your customers give your props and ask you to dye them “that” color? It’s been getting really amusing here and I thought that I would take a picture of what has been handed to me over the last few weeks.
What you are seeing is a flashlight, a handbag and a shawl, because my customers want those colors. As you know, replicating some colors are earlier than others. Reds quite frankly are a pain in the ass. If you are a dyer, what do you do? The blue flashlight came out beautifully and my customer was very happy. Of course I forgot to take a picture of the yarn.
I was going to dye today, but I took a nasty fall down the stairs on Monday and I haven’t quite recovered. All right side including my hand which I may have sprained since it still hurts a lot. I am typing this blog with one hand. I think I might soak in the tub tonight and try to ease my pains away.
Bryce gave me this darling little treasure for my birthday. It is a turtle made out of shells with a straw hat and glasses. She made it home in one piece.
Have a wonderful weekend and happy knitting!
I had a feeling when I woke up today, can’t quite describe it, but I should have stuck with my original plan of doing some spring cleaning (Mom, stop laughing)! She is the Queen of Cleaning and I would never think or try to dethrone her.
I had some dyeing to do and I wasn’t really in the mood a lot of it but thought I should do more that what I needed to get out. Well, that was a mistake. The 2 skeins for the customer are fine and beautiful. The 7 skeins of my 80/10/10 decided today might be a good day to felt!! Yep, when intentional this is a fabulous little happy thing, when unintended, a nightmare. I just couldn’t believe that this had happened. I sat down and had a good cry, then I phoned a friend and then I ate some potato chips and took a shower. I’d take a picture of the carnage, but it is too much for my heart right now. Lesson learned, I will listen to my gut the next time.
Tonight is Knit Night and I am looking forward to seeing everyone. I am bringing my Mystery KAL to show everyone and my Vitamin D, because it needs some love.
Tomorrow Clue #2 is coming out. I will be up early printing that off and then it’s knitting time.
I am baking a banana bread and the house smells yummy and comforting.
Thanks for listening!
Have a great day,
