Friday funday!

Mom and I did a little dying today We dyed Alley Cat, Slinky Cat, Fluffy Cat and Fat Cat!

Most of it's drying at her place, but I had to bring these two home because she was threatening to steal them!
They are destined for two separate baby sweaters for impending arrivals. Its hard to see in the pic, but the one on the right has lovely little hints of blue and pink throughout.

The hardest part is waiting for them to dry - I want to knit with them NOW!

A while back we ordered some samples from a different supplier. We really like our bases, but we wanted to see what else was out there. We weren't too impressed by the yarns in the sample package, but as I was going through the bag - I realized there was probably enough in each sample for a crackghan square or two!

So, as we were dying, I was dipping these little skeins into every colour we played with:
These little guys are hanging over the heat vent right now, and when they are dry you can bet I'll be working them into the crackghan!

I always love seeing the dye jobs you ladies do, the colors always play so well together.

What a gorgeous rainbow! And what a clever idea to feed the crackghan addiction... :)
