Okay really, I wanna DYE! Last two weeks have been crazy with getting ready for fair & my girls showing horses… I guess only fair showing families can really “get it.” I remember my curiosity before the days of my girls showing at the fair… i never really understood the hype & whining.. now I get it & laugh as I see other new families getting it!  Anyway, really wanted to dye up some yarn to work with while “on vacation” at the fair & it just never happened despite my desperate desire! This week has been much of the same… cleaning up from fair, housework, barn work, laundry, back to school shopping & hair braiding & getting ready for labor day festivities… big ole family reunion!  Still wanting to get the dye party on… its do or die tonite! Guess I should say “dye or don’t!”  Still have soccer & cheerleading practices to get thru… stalls & a coop that really need some attention… oh, and a yard that needs BIG help… we’ll see what wins out! I’m having visions of pink, orange & yellow for this go-around. I did finish a cowl & headwrap last night while visiting with my grandma as the girls shared their fair adventures. I’m thankful for that. I also know if I dont get a dye lot done for my next project that i can start on a natural baby blanket. Thats on my list too. And some purses! Keep watching for more postings- probably next week. I have a feeling that my neighbors are going to have to suffer another week of our overgrown yard!

“Ella”

This is while the yarn was still wet,  I’d just wrung it out.  It is a blend of blue, green & purple.  I made it for a personal project & will have to update photos soon! My husband laughs that we’re like the little house on the prairie with yarn draped all over drying & the two of us winding it into balls! This batch is being made into a Neck Cowl.  I have two others done in natural and will have to remember to upload the photos soon! Stay tuned…
