I’ve been bad the last day or two & haven’t run… though in my defense, the weather today was just horrible! ;) I have been running shorter runs, going 3 miles at a time. I do not want to get the ankle hurting again, so I am taking it easy. :)
Adventures in Dyeing
So I finally ordered some bare worsted from Knit Picks rather than trying to dye the Wool-Ease. I played a bit with dyeing with it, but it is a wool/acrylic blend. Just the wool took the color and it was really quite nice, but it was a pale tweedy look. I wanted vivid colors to go with the black for the manlets’ sweaters. Blue/green/black for the oldest and red/white/black for the youngest – of course! LOL I wanted the colors to be long runs, though – so it was a new thing for me to play with. I’m not sure how they are going to work out, but I have hope that it will not be too busy. We shall see once I start knitting it up, anyway!
I finished up the scarf I was working on, another gift. :) Today I’ve been knitting a super special toy for my office. I’m nearly finished with it, but not close enough for pics yet. Enough to say, I can’t wait to finish it – my fellow geeks are going to love it. :D
Tomorrow I’m going to hang out with some knitting friends & knit. I’ll be able to get back to the oldest’s sweater now that I’ve got the yarn dyed up for it. Yay!! :)
