I call it BRUISE

I LOVE this color. It was dyed with Wilton's Icing Dye
and it's so beautiful. I had to photograph it with the Vespa as it was wound at the Annual Niagara Scooter Rally in my tent. Just imagine, one 10x10 tent, one skein of 18 foot yarn. It was interesting. Here are some photos of it

a beer can is excellent for winding yarn

I have a second ball of yarn but its too small to be sent to my Dye-O-Rama pal. However, I do have pictures of trying to untangle and dye that yarn.

Fiddle (of course)

dyeing to dye with KOOLAID

The luscious Lindsay taught me how to dye yarn on Saturday. I have photo's of how mine turned out but you will have to wait for that. There is a lovely picture of fiddle but none of Lindsay. We only dyed about 1/3 of my skein of yarn and it came out perfect after I made a mess of it (I had dyed it orange, red and purple and when it was finished in the microwave it looked like crap so we stuck it in a pot of hot red koolaid and it's beautiful now)

Lindsay and I have another date on the 22nd to finished and prepare our sock yarn for the dye-o-rama swap, I am obessed with getting koolaid now. I want to stop everywhere to see what colors they have.

I also realized on Saturday morning while waiting to purchase Chris' birthday gift, KMFDM an dknitting are an odd couple.
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. A hedgehog on a vespa. Now I REALLY want a Hedgehog. Think of it.. It's the perfect rodent to have with Cats. The first time they try and eat it will be the last.

Cabling, where have you been all my life?

So i started cabling last night. I got 3 rows in when I discovered that i had dropped 2 stitches. Oh well. I frogged down to the beginning of the cables. I found myself begging with fiddle to wait for their treats while I did 'one more row'. Ohhhh I like it though sometimes i find it a bit hard to knit the stitches. That will probably come with more practice. I am making myself a pair of wrist warmers with a celtic band and the top of the arm (I was going to do the wrist but now that I think about it, nah.. although it will be hard to wait until I knit enough rows to start the cables. 28 rows got me to the wrist so i figure another 28 and then the 16 rows of cables.
