I don't know if I will ever get bored of the pretty yarn pictures. Those who have already had enough of the happy woolly posts, look away now... ;)
Indigo, lac, and logwood. I can't decide whether I want to list this, or make something with it myself, a lace cardigan for a girlie, something really soft and pretty, oh my goodness I love these yarns. A day spent dyeing is always perfect confirmation that I REALLY want to do this for a living. I mean, if I can't *not*, get actual withdrawal when there are no dye days for a while - and wake up thinking, "oh I just have to make a skein with *this* colour combination" - it's meant to be.
Just LOOK at that blue! I couldn't believe just how dark the indigo vat was this time. I put one playsilk in for just the barest few seconds, and pulled it out to see a deep bright navy! I have three skeins destined to be rainbow, and the blue is so dark it will need a really deep red to compete with it. It was much more forgiving after some of the colour had been exhausted.
The folding and sorting of so much laundry this week has had one great side effect - a bag of beads turned up. Of *course* I put a stack of clean clothes on top of it. *rolls eyes at self* Bonus jewellery making session! :)
After all the crafting yesterday, today was all about alone time with the children. In the morning, I took Morgan out all by herself. We went for coffee (well, tea, and lemonade, respectively) and looked around the book shops in town. I took her to the supermarket and she chose the ingredients for all of our dinners this week with a level of maturity I would never have expected even from this thoughtful little one. She did not stop talking the ENTIRE time we were out. Those of you who know my Morgan will barely be able to believe that, but it's true: constant chatter! :)
