Dyeing Fun

So, yesterday Gnat (BarknKnit) and I spent part of the afternoon dyeing some fiber. We had so much fun. It was a learning experience using different colors, techniques and fibers.

This was my favorite...our kettle dye.

I am still working on the Lady February Sweater. I won't have it finished before my Mom's birthday on Monday. Bummer. I have knit up 4 dishcloths that she asked for, so at least she will have a knitted items for her present. Will have the sweater done in time for xmas. hehehehe

Participating in the Dish Rag Tag and I am last on the list. Also signed up for Hat Attack which starts in September. Should be fun. These ***Should*** be the only swaps I do for the rest of the year. Trying to stay on a yarn budget.

Did finally get my beautiful pink and brown yarn from WA. It is SO pretty...I need to find the perfect project for it now.
