what to do.....

Okay- I promised Opal a while back I would post some pics of the works in progress --- however my Camera is not working Grrrrrrrrr.

So instead I will tell you what I am working on. I have been spinning a bunch, and have 1 1/2 of the huge black socks for Husband done, and 1 1/2 pair of the Monkey socks for me done too. I have the back still in progress and on the needles for the Weekend Sweater - that is being worked in Kraemer Yarns Summit Hill yarn in a green. The last thing I have on needles - is a lace Estonian Garden Wrap being done in a pale grey laceweight.

So I will try to get some pics later for you all to see, but until then that will have to do.

Happy Valentines Day

Its to be a great romantic day.
I dislike forced feelings. To me - forcing the feelings is almost painful.
I would rather do other things- Like Spin or dye some yarns.
Speaking of dye--- here is what I did last week:Don't those look like something to roll around in? That is my idea of fun.

I want to apologise- this is a photo heavy post - but - Blogger left me do it!!

I had a night of fun - playing with dyes again.

Some of the yarn was already dyed- so I got to learn about color again, and have fun at the same time.
I love working with colors- each set of skein I dye up I fall in love with - until I do another set...

This was one of the favorites

- or was it that one....

or this one????

Anyhow- all 29 skeins are done and ready to finish drying up. Now to watch the superbowl commercials tonight -LOL!

Ground Hog Day!

Spring is to be 6 weeks away according to Phil- so in that thought I figured I would help ward of the bitter cold weather that is heading towards Central Pa and show you some beautiful new yarns that I hand dyed this past weekend.

Its Hand dyed sock yarn! Yummy warm colors- that remind me of warm days.
Cool huh?

I dropped these off tonight at Victorias House of Needlearts, in Ducansville, Pa. I even got to return home with more to dye up! So I shall be nice and warm and in color fun times this weekend.

Hope everyone stays warm!
