While my dye class has been on hiatus between the summer and fall sessions, I have still been dyeing every week, having a "play date" with my pal Sadie.
I am ridiculously happy with the scarf I painted last week and now want to paint about 8,000 more in different color combinations:
Of the knitting I can show you, I have finished this cowl. It's a mosaic stitch pattern knit with the three-ply "Firefly" yarn I dyed and spun from the big fleece Erin and I split and some commercial yarn for contrast (a Cherry Tree Hill sport-weight mill-end). I'm very pleased with it all the way around.
One of our eight-year-old nephews saw me knitting it the day I started it (and the day I finished it a couple of weeks later) and was very taken with it. He kept asking if it was for him, when I would be done, etc. I wasn't going to give this particular one up, but I guess I'll be making a "neck thing" for him for Christmas (and one for his twin brother, of course). He said his favorite colors were green and yellow like the Oakland A's, so I guess I'll do his brother's in silver and black for the Oakland Raiders.
