She got to play with the kitties, the new dog, and the bunnies, she even mooed at the cows. I finished the flamingo blanket, and worked on my sock. Between the weekend and Thursday night knitting I got a lot more done!

I managed to get two more batches of dyeing done before I had to go pick Tattoo Husband up from the airport.
Cooling down & another yarn tree blooming
It's supposed to be green and purple, but the green turned out a little more bluey than I wanted. I also dyed a sample of some angelina fiber yesterday, just to see what would happen. The color used was copenhagen blue, I was amazed at the results! You will be too!
This is NOT blue! WTF?!!!
It's still pretty though.
I'm gonna have to try dyeing more of this stuff with other methods and see what I come up with. :)
I got some more roving listed on etsy and hopefully soon more sock yarn and all of the cotton and linen I've done.
Today is S&B night Yay! I get to either work on my sock, or the blanket I can't decide. I'm not allowing myself to work on any new projects until the blanket is done, so maybe that. I guess it will be a surprise!

Some unknown person dumped a bunch of branches in my alley last saturday while we were gone, so I trimmed one up and hung yarn on it, see the yarn trees really are blooming!

This isn't how I usually dye stuff, I like hand painting a lot more, but I've had a few requests for more solid colors. Usually when I do immersion dyeing the yarn gets tangled, so I put more ties on the skeins this time. Hopefully the color will turn out somewhat even too.

Sat. morning I woke up with a headache which progressed into a full blown migraine, no knitting then either. I had wanted to go to the Yarn Barn, but not with a migraine. Finally felt better about 8 pm so I could at least be social for a bit.
Sunday we got up and let the kids play(they have an 18mo old son), they had so much fun! we finally left about 5pm, and decided to stop by another friends house, got lost finding it too. I hate rural Kansas, their road signs make no sense! got there at 7 stayed for an hour, then left to go home. by the time we got to a road that we knew it was dark. no knitting.
The countryside was pretty, and we got to see a lot of scenery, and visit with friends we don't get to see enough, so most of the weekend was pretty good. But no knitting :(
