Another FO!!!


Last night I finished and gifted Dave's blue Manos hat. He loved it, and had no idea that I was making it :)
I have a lot of yarn left, in both the main dark blue and the lighter blue (stripes). This will promptly head back into the Manos stash, and hopefully get integrated into another project instead of laying around feeling unwanted forever, which is what happens to most of my leftovers...

I realized last night that I have another project that could be part of Project Spectrum - the pink shrug/capelet/who know what to call it from Rowan that I started over the summer. So, as soon as Lady E is done (on the 9th ball and moving fast), I'll dig that out and work on it try to remember where I was...

I spent a bit of time at Weaving Works today lusting over yarn (and not buying any, this Lent thing is killing me) and looking at their dyeing wall. They have all kinds of dyes, and I think I've figured out the kind I want to get for the dyeing party. I did buy, as you know, loads of Kool-aid last week, but the colors are so much more varied and intense with proper commercial dyes, so I want to go that route. I have a vision, and it involves blue and turquoise (maybe not at the same time), which I can't do with Kool-aid. We'll see. I didn't buy anything because I want to take a poll of the Easter dyeing party attendees and see what colors people want most so I can attempt to accomodate them (as long as it's also what I want - heheh).
