Things calmed back down to a semblance of normal after that. I returned to my dyepots, which you see here.
This is the most AMAZING Rambouillet wool fleece from Homestead Wool & Gift Farm - 'Curley Sue' from yesterday's post as a matter of fact. I did an all green batch and a green & blue batch. Soft & springy to beat the band, I tell ya! Look for these in my Etsy shop very soon (they're on the drying racks as we speak).
I also did some Baby Doll Southdown yesterday, but wasn't that happy with the results. I had a bit of an 'oops!' moment with the orange dye, so today I'm doing some over-dyeing with turquoise. Let's just call it an experiment, shall we?
It wasn't all work & no play yesterday. Took that photo of my 4 new charms headed for my charm bracelet. A '64 Chevy like my Impala 'Betty' (ok, it's just a car, but still...); a rooster to bring me some Eleggua energy; a corkscrew 'cuz, well, I do love me some wine!; and a Princess phone just like the turquoise vintage model in our bedroom. Fun!
Ended my day with Crafters Under the Influence. This week was Lush, Monica, Jen, & me. Once again, beer, tequila, & whiskey were involved. We got kinda bleary & blurry. Good times, good times. Although I fucked up my entrelac socks. Le sigh. Guess that means I've earned my FUBAR Knit badge! I think it's apparent from our pics that we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves. There was knitting, painting, & project planning going on in addition to the general swilling, rocking madness.
