Thanks for the nice comments! I did bike a little farther yesterday. Today, though, it's yucky looking out there. I hope it doesn't rain! MM and the other 8th graders are on a field trip. An outdoor field trip.
Well, here are a couple of pics of my newest hand painted yarn. I call it hand painted because I do "paint" the kool ade right onto it. I don't immerse the wool into the dye. I guess that's the difference between hand dyed and hand painted. It turned out really pretty. Different shades of purples, blues, and greens. SP told me I should call it leviathan. I guess I can, if I can figure out how to spell it. haha. Handy spell check! It does remind me of the deepest sea. It's a little darker in real life than in these pics.
I will be putting it in my etsy shop. It is worsted weight Virgin wool. 8 ounces, about 465 yards. This yarn makes some great felted items. I need to remember to mention that in the description. I have some acid dyes, that I'm dying (haha) to try, but I need another slow cooker, or some pans specifically for acid dyeing, first.
I think, before I do any house work, I'll go scan some other blogs. I've got over 60 on bloglines, and more that I check often, and need to add to bloglines. That is such a time saver. I used to check if anyone posted by going to each of my favorite blogs, and it took forever! I love that I can go to one place and find out if there is a new post.
I have a little meme thing that I meant to post, but I guess I had more pressing knitterly things to talk about. Maybe tomorrow. It's one that is things about me.
Time to go read blogs and knit. Then, on to the housework. (Yuck!)
