The Yarnarian Blathers On!

Are you getting ready for our mitered scarf knitalong? DragonYady on Ravelry said she would start a forum for us. I was briefly thinking about a Yahoo group, but folks, I just don't have the time or energy for that. So, if you're not on Ravelry, sign up already, or you can ask me questions here as we go along.

Are you thinking about what yarns to use? Anything goes here. Lots of leftovers, whatever you like. You could even do it in a solid color, although I think that might get boring by the time you hit the 5th miter. ;-)

You can use other yarns besides sock yarn, too. It depends on what weight you want and what you want to do with it when you're done.

Dyeing news:
today I'm going to dye up 6 yarns in various forms of brown and neutrals. Why? I got the latest catalog from the Company Store, and they have some of the prettiest sheets in colors like that. I don't need the bedding, but I bet colorways in these families would be very pretty. I'm going to mix up chestnut, and toffee and caramel and any other color I have like those, and play with them. And in a day or so, I'll show you the results.

Etsy Shop: So here's what I listed this morning. Chocolate Mint Ice Cream in Shelley yarn. It's mighty delicious and not one single calorie.

I still have my cold, and I want desperately to meet Lilith Grace, our new granddaughter. It's just not fair! And I can't go visit the Mommie; who wants to give a cold to a 94 year old woman? So brand new and very old, and I'm stuck here sniffling and honking and wiping. Yuch.

CathyR - It is yummy! And in real life, it's a mighty tasty yarn!

Jen - You've gone over the furry edge. ;-)

Cyndi - It sold just about an hour ago! I'm going to do more of this kind of dyeing; I like doing it very much.

That yarn looks positively yummy.

Is is wrong that I want to lick your yarn?

Cyndi said...

I LOVE that yarn!!!


Please let me know when choclolate chip mint becomes available again. Or anything in the robins egg blue and brown ranges. It's the colors I've been collecting for a project. Thanks.
