Giving Thanks…

… a couple of days late.  Ah well.  Happy belated Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!

What was I thankful for?

1) The long weekend – seriously needed a rest

2) Having a great meal with my family

3) Being able to ‘use up’ the odd yarn blanks in the dyeing cupboard

Woo… it’s a special sneak update of a dyeing weekend!!!

Just 2 this time but I tried a different technique and like the results a lot:

First – bfl high twist in mermaid’s deep: A mix of teal, royal blue and spruce.

Second- crazy eight (sport weight) in harvest festival: A mix of aztec gold, emerald-ish green and purple.

Comments: Loved the pattern, love the finished socks.  Had SSS really bad with these though.
