Re: KAL ~ Knit for the love of it! Sept 30 - Oct 6

Karyn, I found a playsilk game! We're holding up the red playsilk yelling toro, and she runs back and forth through it. It's been like, 15 minutes.

Even my cousin (read beard) that no one has seen in 8 years (not even his dad...bald guy sitting below him that has stage 4 lung cancer) came with his gfriend

and because we had to be funny you can probably tell my aunt and uncle that are deaf didn't know what we were doing
Awww family pics are the best!!!! My family is full of pita's so it's a real pain to get a family pic together lol

b) ask the dyer (who's on DS/HC) to dye some up

c) do some koolaid dyeing...never done this before and have no idea how to match cws

d) pray and cross my fingers and toes that I might have enough to embroider little 5 inch scraps at the end of my project. I think I might just be able to eek out enough cw on the legs since its just nb size...but with ls I use SOOOO much yarn.

Suggestions? Inspiration? Eye rolls and laughs?
Lol at the eyerolls and laughs

Id suggest waiting till the end jic you do have enough and if not you can order an oz of each and with the left over making something cute to coordinate with the outfit

Beg your kal pals to send you a couple feet of similar colored yarn scraps and hope they match? I have PLENTY of solid colors, I could send you some!

Re: KAL ~ Knit for the love of it! Sept 30 - Oct 6

ten more minutes and kids will go to bed.

this infection is terrible..I hate them

I hope to CO the TAS hat today. I have to cake the solid color though. Now I wish I had a gradient dyed yarn for the alternate stripes. That would look cool. NOT buying more yarn though. Must use stash, must use stash, must use stash
