it's about time
i'm recovering from some bad blogging disorder. i'm gonna try to update this more often, i've simply gone too long without an update. so here it is...
I finished my first pair of socks! ever! even the strings are all darned in!
nessie is the half-dog in the background. she was pretty excited about the socks too. she tried to eat them.
i'm currently testing out some dye colors. i mixed a packet of cherry, black cherry and grape together and played around with concentration to make this.
the darkest concentration turned out a bit too maroon for my taste. i'll probably test a few more colors and concentrations until i find a winner. once i find the winner i'll dye this scarf
then (this is the exciting part) i'm going to go shibori on it's ass. that's right people, shibori. i'm gonna tie some rocks to the ends of the scarf using rubber bands then felt it. i really hope it turns out cool, otherwise it will become a new tug o' war toy for the pups. they do love their wool.
i'm working on ANOTHER pair of socks (am i turning into a sock whore? how does this happen?) Kyle, my BIL demanded a pair of black socks which he will be getting for his birthday on october 4th. i knit these almost exclusively at school (we're on week 4)
speaking of school, i'm not loving it. my classes are mostly lame and require unholy amounts of reading. it's not worthwhile reading though, it's mumbo-jumbo repetitive junk. all junk. boo.
which reminds me, i have to go to class.
