Creamsicle T sleeves are about 3" done. I'm knitting both at the same time, which is my preferred method of knitting sleeves. That way, I know my gauge is the same, and I don't have to figure out what I did on the first one. Creamsicle T shows that I can stick to one project if it's the right one at the right time. Sure, I threw a little bit of fairisle mitten and Kiri knitting into the mix, plus a wee bit of spinning. But that's as close to knitting monogamy as I can get.
The wee bit of spinning is plied and is lovely. It's soft and squishy. Pictures tomorrow.
I ordered some Jacquard acid dyes from Dharma Trading Company. I'm starting with primaries and black, and some tools. We have a second crock pot in the basement that I'll put to good use. I'm reading good info on the Dye Happy Yahoo group and can't wait to experiment. I'll admit to feeling a bit intimidated and clueless, and I'm hoping it will all work itself out once I get started. In addition to good ole fiber dyeing, I'd like to try some superwash wools for self-striping sock yarn.
And in the "I'm an idiot" category, I got off my butt and decided to figure out how to write a pattern for Buttercup. I mean, it's only been, what, a month??? Sometime before winter ends would be nice, eh? It was then that I realized: Buttercup is in NC. I already gave it away! My notes are, well, let's just say, I didn't even write down how many stitches I cast on. Yup, I'm an idiot. I can rework it from the photos and memory, and I'll probably use an easier to find yarn to test knit it. Sigh. Live and learn.
