This is a plain, purple hat that I am knitting on 4mm needles. I am basing it on a hat that I actually made for John. I made him a hat a few years back and recently threw it on to walk the dog and discovered that I loved it. I made a mistake with this new purple hat and cast on about 6-10 stitches less than I intended. I think I will get away with it. I have small head. It has been warm lately so I haven't been needing hats but I am sure I will in a month or two.
This is one of the skeins that I dyed first with avocado skins then overdyed with some acid dyes.
Yesterday evening, I decided I could take some photos for the blog of what I dyed with the avocado skins and over dyed with some acid dye. It was too late in the day for photos. The light was terrible and I photographed them anyway. These photos aren't great and I apologise.
I finished the tan and handspun sweater. Now I need to weave in the ends. I'll get John to photograph me in the sweater. I would like to make some mittens with the leftover yarn. I had a great weekend. I decided to try to rest up a bit in getting ready for the busy times ahead of me. I can't wait to get back working with my sewing machine! I miss my weekend sewing.
Lexi is still behaving with the stuffed animals. Maybe because she is a mature lady of 2, she is not shredding them and is just playing with them. It is great because Lexi gets so excited anytime she sees a stuffed animal.
This is Lexi playing with Molly's toys when she was a pup. This is almost two years ago.
Lexi, in our kitchen, a month or so after we got her. This photo was taken December 2012. These photos crack me up.
