ladies!

Last night I frogged the tester sweater I was working on b/c the writer changed the # of CO sts... it wasn't really a big deal b/c I wasn't all that far into it. So I'm working on that.

I'm going to try to wrap up all my dyeing this weekend too so that I can get started on the coop right away. I'm really nervous about it.

Morning ladies and Tim if you're around. That's for the romper compliments yesterday, you really know how to make a girl's head huge

Shelly what are you nervous about, everything will turn out great! I don't understand how you dye large batches though, do you still have to do it a skein or two at a time?
I'm so bummed I missed the coop, I was thinking it wasn't opening until last Monday, not over the weekend!

I'm nervous about getting it all done I WOH FT and I still have kids and a house to take care of... It is why I kept the maximums so low. I'd love to dye for whoever wants yarn and in any colorway, but I have to be realistic with myself... I just hope I was realistic enough.

I will still dye in small batches for the most part. I just don't have surface space to hand paint a dozen skeins at once (or I might have had higher maximums).

Yeah I was kind of wondering about the space. If you just dye in your kitchen there's no room to do more than a few at a time.

Don't be nervous though, you'll get it all done! What did you give for a turnaround time? If you couldn't meet it, it wouldn't be the end of the world. If you could just try to dye a couple of skeins a night you'd get it all done in no time!

That's the plan. I gave myself a generous time frame... I'm sure I'll be okay... I just worry.

Does anyone remember which listing Erica wanted stalking help with? I really need to help her so I am not tempted to buy for me.
