Re: Knitters--Hookers--Spinners--Dyers ♫ WIP ♫ 10/2/2010

I just ordered yarn for my sister's Through the Woods hood, she said she wanted neutrals like mine so I ordered from the same company as mine but got her this one - she likes blue and the twisting strand of rust gives it a punch! Still neutral but Not...

How do you like that Bulky Kona Superwash? I have a sample of it, and it seems so soft. I'm already planning on knitting Ellie a Romper from it. I was wondering how it felt after the dye process? It looks like it takes dye beautifully!

Tanya,

It is still super soft after dyeing it. It's funny because while its in the dye it feels so slimey and scary. So soft I am afraid I might felt it. But this was kept hot for a while and it came out just fine. I am interested to see how it holds it shape after it is knit up.

But darn if I have us 10s short enough and I can't find my cric 13s, ugh.

Ok, popping on to say hi!!! Having a great night with the hubs. I find it hysterical that he's just chilling and we're talking while I'm checking my threads LOL. That's love haha

So what's everyone's favorite Laines Magnifique yarn base? I'm thinking about talking DH into letting me get some from her fall co-op.

Forgot to say yesterday: Emily and Blue Saddle- Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy for you both!

Sorry, no constant computer here yet- still using BIL's once a day or so.

Finishing button band on a Molly Bubble Romper- had to rip it out 3x after getting distracted each time. Ugh. Need some alone knitting time. LONG weekend- my dd10 bday party Fri night and 2 bday parties today. WIPED yet I cannot sleep (it is after 4am). Going to try to take a warm bath and relax. Can't wait to be back for good- I miss everyone!

Loving the dyed wool! I haven't dyed in awhile, I have enough I dyed and need to spin already!
My current WIPS:
MM Chocolat for a mama here (large longies):


One leg of On-the-Goveralls, they are blue and red, but it looks a bit orange:
