I got some things finished last week including baby bear and dyeing my first skein of yarn.
So here is my baby bear. We call him our special little guy because even though you can´t see it in this more flattering pic he does look a little ”special”. We love him anyway! I should have made him on a smaller needle though. I don´t think I knit as tightly as Susan does.
I finished another square for the boys see and feel blanket. It was a fun knit.
I´ve re knit the cedar leaf and I still think I will be short on yarn. I guess I will have to try to find another skein of this color. Won´t that just be a /&%$.
I colored the yarn for the tea leaf cardigan as you can see. I´m keeping the main color secret for now. You will see the final project. Apparently I am not allowed to dye yarn because the day after I do it rains and since I use the sun as me heat source, because I don´t have anything else handy (no extra microwave or pots) and I don´t want to get one till I´m sure that I´m going to be doing a lot of this, I don´t get to enjoy what I have done till I have a few good sunny days. I´m starting to think I am going to be doing a lot of dyeing though. I really enjoy the process. So I guess I´m going to be having to hit the thrift shops to buy some sort of heat source.
I´m proud to introduce my first dyed skein of yarn and it is up for grabs in a giveaway. It´s a 100 gram skein of merino wool from Knit Picks in fingering weight. I love the color. It just reminds me of days on the beach in France. It´s such a bright and happy color. I like this so much that I thought about not giving it away and just making a citron shawl out of it. But I had already promised this so here it is.
Anyway, if you would like to enter to win this skein you can leave a comment. Only one comment per person unless you are or become a follower then enter another comment telling me that you are a follower and then you have double the chance of winning this 440 yards of beautiful yarn.
You can enter till midnight Saturday and then I will announce the winner on Monday during my itty bitty update.
