Nearly a year of “blogging” and I’m at 50 posts. Well that’s not so bad. October’s been a heavy month for me so let’s travel back in time to Thanksgiving (Oct 11).
(quick aside: It snowed on the 25th!!! and it hasn’t left yet :D)
As has become custom, dyeing of yarn took place on the long weekend. I had acquired a new base to try (Sheila’s Gold from Wool2Dye4). It’s a 2ply wool/nylon mix and is very nice. I’m probably going to go back to Wool2Dye4’s cash sock though, cuz it’s got cashmere in it. 😛

Still on my orange kick. Bright orange with equal amounts of blue purple and red purple for a background. I’m thinking I put 1 too many orange spots on this skein, but I’m looking forward to knitting it up!
I had a lot of fun that weekend. A friend came over and learned to dye as well, her yarn turned out awesome. 🙂
We also had an equipment failure and had to find a new way to reskein yarn. Enter a quick google search for pvc niddy noddy and knitting fool’s blog for the calculation of length and we have:
cheap, fun and practical. 🙂
Katie, meanwhile, has grown her winter coat and still manages to pout over her kibble diet. For a sense of scale: Each of those tiles is 12″ by 12″.
