More coloring.  ;)


It's not exactly what I was going for — it's a bit brighter than I'd imagined! I love it, though. One of those is already wound up because I'm dying to see how it knits up.


There was a little room in the pot so I threw in this hank of bulky SW merino/nylon to soak up the slop. It's already on the needles being worked up into a hat!

It's fun to play around! I'm not always consistent with output — what with work, family, occasional travel, other obligations, and a bunch of other interests — but I do sell most of the yarn that I dye. It's mostly through Make.Do@KC&T — my little knitting corner within Ali's coffee shop where I also carry some tools & notions, patterns & books, other stuff that I like (and from suppliers that don't have huge minimum orders… it's a wee shop!). I'm more than happy to pack & ship if ever there's something you see. Mostly, it's a fingering/sock base — 75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon — but I work with some other bases, too.


I predict we'll have a very mobile baby by Christmas! She pivots when she sits, reaching and scooting… she has to figure out a couple of things yet, like how to get her leg out of the way!

Zoom Zoom!

  1. Such sunny, happy yarn! The skeins look like they were dipped in fresh egg yolk. (I mean that in a good way.)
    And how can that baby be so big already? She is growing up sooo fast.

  2. I’m not sure I’d describe these beautiful, bright skeins with words like “soak up the slop”, but they are lovely and I’m anxious to see that hat. Gin must be very advanced for her age; how can she be almost mobile when it seems she was just born a few months ago? 🙂

  3. Love the yellow in your yarn – wonderful! And Gin – so cute…I laughed when I read about learning to get her leg out of the way.

  4. Oh my Ginny is certainly moving! Yup she’ll have crawling down by Christmas, or be like my eldest and log roll everywhere! including getting stuck under the bed and sofa. Love your sunny yarn colors!
