And they're off...

Last night I intended to do a big post with plenty of pics of the yarn I dyed in the week, updates on all the WIPs etc etc. Blogger would not play nicely and I haven't got time now as we're about to depart on holiday.

It is normal to sort out WIPs to take with me, and pack books and wind skeins into balls before even thinking about packing clothes, toothbrush etc isn't it? I have also discovered a knitting group that meets in Penrith, so hopefully I'll be paying them a visit tomorrow!

Monkey spent all of yesterday packing his one woolly banana to take on holiday with him. I am definitely not employing him to do all of my house removal packing.

I'll leave you with one pic, of the yarn I dyed in the week:

This was 2 x 50g of bright turquoise Regia 4ply sockyarn. I overdyed it with two sachets of black grape Koolaid. The colour isn't even between the two skeins but I like the effects, and the blue is much more muted now!

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern!

Cool dyeing. Have fun!

Have a great holiday, kiddo! I hope Monkey behaves himself.

I am always more interested in packing my knitting before anything else. What if it all goes wrong and I leave some crucial part of my work at home? I can buy new knickers or socks while I'm away, but I can't always buy something I've left behind for my knitting! So yeah, I understand.

I love the dyed yarn - looks much better than the original! Hope you're having a fab time on holiday :)

your dyeing looks great! maybe you could use the two yarns together for stripes, or one for cuffs, heel and toes?
