Last week, I was walking through Design Partners, this small art supply store that caters mainly to FIT students, and carries mostly non-fabulous yarns (but decent knitting needles and accessories), when I ran into this:
4 Skeins of Lion Brand Textures perfect for dyeing. They practically jumped out of the sale bin and requested to come home with me. It was only $8 for all four, so how could I say no? They are 100% wool and destined to meet Kool-aid at some point in the future.
Usually I wouldn't stash yarn without even a vague idea of a project in mind, but dyeing changes this. Down the road, when they are pulled out of the stash and dyed, it won't be like working with a potentially-unexciting stash yarn, rather more like working with brand new freshly-colored yarn.
This weekend I did some knitting, and even finished *something*, but neglected to take photos! tomorrow perhaps...
Also this weekend I designed Stephanie's new site! I hope you all checked it out. It was great fun. If you need a new blog or a new design, I'm your girl!
