Midweek Mutterings......

An okay week sofar....with lots of lovely things to show and tell :) First off.....my Knitpicks Harmony Circulars from Get Knitted.....ooooooohhhh hhhhmmmmmm....and I got some sweeties and a free pen!!!

As I said on Monday, I've been experimenting in dyeing my new slow cooker....I did 100g of BFL on Monday, in pinks and purples.....and its turned out not too bad :) Ends are a little felted, but thats okay. I just need to work out the timings now.

Its spinning up okay.....!!!

I braided some more roving last night, and dyed it up in the braid.....so we shall see how that has turned out :) I am really enjoying the randomness of the dyeing......I am usually such a precise person, its nice to "allow" myself some "Lets just slap it on and see what happens"..... quite liberating in fact....hehehe

Really nice yarn there. Im not getting on too well with spinning yet. I think its my wheel, its not adjustable and I haven't had time to work it out. Shame antiques don't come with instructions really.

You asked where I got my Sugar n Creme... I took part in a swap at Crochetville for some of it, and a friend in the USA sent me the rest. I have loads of it, mostly variagated and im a bit stuck as to what else to make with it other than dish cloths and face cloths.

I love love love those harmonies! I was about to buy a pair of their dpns this morning but they don't go up to 4.5mm :(
That yarn is looking yum too.
The weather is shitty isn't it? I want to hide in a big hole for about a month.
