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!


It's the little things

Like a photo of some slippers in a magazine.

MY photo of slippers I MADE in a MAGAZINE! They asked permission, credited the photo with my name and blogsite, sent me a copy, and EVERYTHING!

The magazine is Mollie Makes, a UK-based magazine for makers, thrifters, collectors, crafters. It was waiting in my stack of mail upon returning from Chicago. So fun!

The slippers are Hopsalots, of course, by tiny owl knits.

I'm quite pleased. I sell both the pattern and the yarn I used, Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller Full O' Sheep, at my *tiny* and slowly growing shop, Make.Do. I hope soon to have some items listed online -- especially some Make.Do Hand-Dyes.

If there's a holiday you observe this weekend -- and even if there's not -- I hope you're having a great one!
