Baa Baa Black Sheep Have You any WOOL... Tuesday

Good morning mamas!!!

I don't know if it's too early, but I've been lurking for 35 minutes waiting for someone to start the thread.

I've been in bed sick for three days and DH went back to work today and I'm still feeling pretty out of it... so I needed to chat w/ my woolly friends.

I started my mom's second sock and when I got to the gusset, I realized I'd done the first one wrong. So now I have to redo it!! BUMMER. But... I still have another month and a sock takes about a day. So... it's not too bad. I'd rather have them perfect anyway. The first one had some minor issues that I wasn't going to look back on... but now after this development, I have an excuse to fix them.



My Cestari order shipped yesterday. So I will be back to work soon.


I thought I had something else to say but I guess it will have to wait... cannot think right now...

OH! I think i'm going to dye yarn today.

Is it okay to dye yarn while the kids are up?


Also... is this sock yarn?

I've dyed yarn while the kids were up. They just complained about the vinegar stink lol.
I think that yarn might be lace weight based on the project they gave as an example and the yardage.

Good morning. Last night I broke a 6 day run of very, very little sleep. I woke up this morning from a sleep so deep I didn't know where I was.

Molly, I hope you're starting to feel better.

I'm halfway done w/ my Ravensong shorties waistband! Can't wait to get to the colorway.

Molly, I didn't get to post yesterday (it was a work outside the home day) but I wanted to tell you that I really like the linen stitch RK. It does look different from RK knit traditionally, but I really liked them.

Any luck on getting A in to see someone?

Sorry you've been under the weather

Oh man! What a job!

We have hardwood floors through every room in our house but the bathroom and kitchen. I love them... but we do really go through a lot of slippers.
