Charles from CooL Buddha Tonic sent me some of his beautiful hand dyed yarn!!!! Charles is awesome, if you haven't checked out his shop yet, you should. The colorway is called "Shanghi Noon", the picture does this yarn no justice. I need to give a stab at using acid dye, the colors are so intense! So I have 210 yards of worsted weight *SOFT* merino, what should i do???
I ran to A.C. Moore last week to pick up some thing because Kellyn wanted to learn how to knit. She picked it up really quick!!! We just did a garter stitch scarf in Thick and Quick, if I can pull it away from her for 2 seconds I'll snap a pic for you all. While we were there I grabbed some Sugar and Cream to try out Dave's Garterlac Dishcloth. After 3 attempts, I finally got it:
I can't wait to make another one, but I'm trying to hold off on dishclothes ans washrags until the Dishcloth KAL starts in September. That's gonna be awesome, BTW! JoiN if you want to be cool and you're just not sure how :-)
I may finally cast my second Knuck on today, though I'm not excited about it. I not the biggest fan of the pattern. It's a little messy, IMHO. Maybe I'm just a bad knitta? I do plan on making another pair out of the Rowan Cotton Tweed, just to see if I get better results.
I don't have any new pictures of the kitties, so we're gonna do a music video instead. I found this Swedish band listening to a channel on my Last.fm Player and I love them!
