summer = crazy busy

Ever since May started it just seems like there is less time in the day even though it's daylight savings time. I've been dyeing some self stripeing yarns and some fibers, going on road trips, trying to get ready for a week long camping event, and gardening! I got some more pics up on flickr, and here is a video of babygurl dancin.

I came across this thought you all need to see it too!

Got it!

OK, so I got flickr as you will notice it's on the sidebar now. I've put up some of the pics that are in previous posts so you can see them better. I'm still working on uploading the others, but I'm getting tired and must watch the Gray's Anatomy 2 hour special tonight!

The warping board is finished, and has been warped! I used bolts instead of the metal rods because I didn't want to cut the rods, but I think I need to cut the tops off of the bolts on the single side so I can get the yarn off easier. The tops have to stay on the double side so I can get them in and out still.

Now I hope I wound the yarn correctly. I guess I'll find out after I dye it and knit a swatch. :)

I dyed some more angelina fiber along with some other yarns, they turned out much better than the first one. Maybe the heat setting was all it needed.

These are actually the colors they are supposed to be. :)

Apparently blogger won't let me put any more pictures in this post, so tomorrow I am going to learn how to use flicker. I will give the details of the rest of my dyeing then.
