Yesterday was the first full day the kids were in school, so Heather and I dyed yarn! I think she had fun, and I know I did!
The day started out really strange. It was 64 degrees and 100% humidity. You could see the water particles in the air. That didn’t stop us though. Heather had never dyed yarn before, so I gave her some cashmere to practice on! Actually, it was a color that I didn’t love, so she played with it and created a color she liked. Then she informed me that she’d never knit with cashmere. That’s about to change! She also overdyed a sweater quantity of yarn. I’m eager to see what she does with it.
I dyed this!
I also dyed roving for the first time.
I also overdyed a sweater quantity, but it’s still drying. More on that some day!
I’m almost done with the blocks for quilt 5 from the Living Large 2 book.
I probably won’t be too productive this weekend for a few reasons!
- The Genius is coming home tomorrow!!!!
- We have a wedding rehearsal and wedding to attend.
- My sister’s college girls will be around for the weekend, and we’ll spend Sunday with them! There’s a big hunk of beef in my freezer that’s going on The Big Green Egg!!!
So, enjoy your long weekend, everyone! See ya next week!
