A whole new world

What world might that be? Dying yarn. I had no idea the process could be so involved or so interesting. Over the long (hot) summer, I've done less knitting that I anticipated. Only a few finished projects, a few in progress, but not much knitting time because, honestly, wool is just no fun in 90 degree weather. Now that its getting cooler out I anticipate much more knitting time, but over the summer it wasn't so easy to get motivated about having woolly yarn in a big hot pile on my lap and causing my hands to clam up. But this yarn dying thing is something that is entirely appropriate for warm summer (or early autumn) days. Jessica graciously invited me to her house along with Melinda and Christine to watch and participate in the yarn dying process. It was so much fun, and I can easily see myself becoming addicted.
