Re: KAL ~ Christmas Crafts: Dec 2-8

I took pics of my process throughout today!

1) Bag o' wool


2) Tub o' wool, after 5-6 hot filtered baths


3) Part of it in the dye pot. I put it in lukewarm, added dye and chemicals, then heated it up very hot without moving to remove MORE of the lanolin


4) Fluffed back out after it cooled a bit. If you look, you can see a few spots with water beading, so there is still SOME lanolin


5) The pile. I purposefully dyed in blotchy chunks, so I can play with blending it as I card it


I was sewing and cleaning in between changing water pots etc

Part of me says I should go sew up these doll clothes and a couple normal postpartum pads, part of me is DONE for the day and just needs to veg.

I'm back and checking in...but going to leave again

this sleeve is taking forever! And Em is refusing to sleep. Benj is wanting me to make the bed. And I need to do diaper laundry.

Pi was on laundry duty today to earn his way out of a hole he dug himself. I have to say he does a pretty good job if it's stuff he knows how to handle.

Did you figure out something special for Steven?

I went to high school here and it's where Rb was stationed for a year. He asked if we could move back. I would love to but man that's cold!
