Yay me!

I mentioned the other day that I have entered the world of yarn dyeing. It’s seeping into my daily thoughts and all I want to do is create more of The Pretty! My skein of Bare showed up in the mail Saturday morning along with some other yarny goodies that I couldn’t help but buy during the Knitpicks sale last week. It’s sitting on the dining room table mocking me. It’s taunting me and begging me to give it some color! But… it’ll have to wait.

Until I have time to dye again though check this out… my big skein finally dried out (dang humidity!) and I caked it up tonight. Presenting… Superman!

Superman

Superman, you ask? Yes, because if you look closely, it’s wearing a cape and tights and it can fly! Hehe just kidding. Actually I’ve named it Superman because it reminds me of Superman ice cream (yum!) Now all I can think of is hot summer days Up North getting a cone of Superman ice cream after swimming all afternoon in Crystal Lake. 🙂 I can’t wait to knit with it and see what it looks like!

Check out the beauty that is my first completed Noro sock. Yeah, I still wish I’d done an afterthought heel but too freaking bad. I’m a frog lover not a frogger. hehe

Finished!!

Finished!!

In other yarny news… I learned how to dye yarn today and am in LOVE!!

Look at the COLOR!!

That’s just one of my pretties… I have a feeling I’ll be doing a lot of dyeing this summer and that sock blanket that stalled last summer will be revived. 🙂

Sock it to me

So I lied. Last time I updated I said that the Noro sock yarn was going to wait until vacation. It totally didn’t wait. I started a sock and I’m in love with it.

Pretty!

Pretty!

I should have done an afterthought heel so that there wasn’t that funky stripe at the ankle, but no way am I ripping it back. I’ll just make sure that the pair I make out of the other skein has an afterthought heel so that The Pretty isn’t interrupted.

In other knitterly news, I made it back to Thursday Knitting this week, finally. It was lovely to get back to a little Knit Therapy with the ladies. I’ve missed it. I’m also going to be trying yarn dyeing soon too thanks to the Thursday Girls. Like I need another hobby?! Photos will be shared, of course. 🙂

That’s about it… my movie is almost done, my hands are knitted out, and my bed is calling my name. Can you hear it? Kellieeeeeeee! hehe

Happy Knitting!
