I'm dyeing to show you (ha ha) the yarn I dyed for Robyn's Nest October Sock Club--but I can't just yet.
The orders are in and I'm just waiting on a final tally before sending the yarn off....all will be revealed shortly.
I had hubby print up some new yarn cards/tags for the yarn and I'm very happy with them.
Robyn herself is designing the pattern. Fun!
I went to Spinning Guild yesterday and spun up most of the Spunky Club August Fibre:
It's called "Thermograph" and mine is mostly pink. Princess B asked me to knit her a dress, but will settle on some mittens and a hat.
and in weird news--we had HAIL today!
It has been cold and rainy so all the yarn I am dyeing is not drying very quickly--but this afternoon it was sunny with a bit of a breeze so I hung yarn outside. It rained about 3pm (on our walk home) and then about 5:30 started HAILING like crazy for about 2 minutes.
Last night I watched 3:10 to Yuma while I re-skeined yarn. Pretty good movie. Usually I'm not a big fan of Westerns, but this one was good and not a typical Western (ie: cliches cowboy stuff with the predictable ending)..
I joined zip.ca for a trial membership and am loving it so far--I've only watched 2 movies, but they send them very quickly.
(and apparently I am a huge dork as I had NO IDEA that Christian Bale was English--I've watched him all these years but apparently had never heard him speak in an interview, until I saw a special feature on the DVD).
