I really wanted to post some pics of what I did this past weekend, but I couldn't upload them onto my computer. I need to get the software, or upload them on a different computer then put them on mine.
Well, anyways, I've really been enjoying being on Ravelry. I enjoy reading all the stuff on there. I find it very inspiring to have a community of like-minded fiber lovers!
So I guess I'm going to have an excuse from now on called, "Ravelry made me do it!" Ha Ha.
I was reading messages about dyeing with Koolaid, and also Easter egg dye. I got out some singles I'd spindle spun, and some carded batts, and even some uncarded, but washed wool, and had some fun. Back in 2006 or so, I tried dying with Easter egg dye, but just kept the colors straight from the package, no mixing. This time I tried combining a few colors. I was pretty pleased with the experiment. I liked how the ee dye colors were more toned down, rather than the neon-ish colors you get with the straight-from-the package dye. Next time I go to the grocery store, I'm going to stock up on lots of Koolaid for more dyeing fun in the future! Yay!

Hey, I joined Ravelry. Looks like it's going to be a fun place to hang out. I hope I don't get too addicted! It's almost too much of a good thing. Ha ha. All those knitterly type people all in one place! Kind of like an online knitters Disneyland.

Haven't been blogging much lately. Truth is, I really would rather read everyone else's blog in blogland, than to write in mine. Ya'll are so interesting!
As far as the hat I started in my last post, well, I never really got anywhere with it after that. But I have been doing some other creative things - mostly non-fiber related. I've been painting small paintings on 5x7 inch cards to give out to people. I took an entire day last week to make a collage. I also recently made a beaded necklace and matching bracelet. Yesterday I skirted and washed wool. So that's all the latest with me.

You Are "delete"

Some people might try to say you're standoffish and aloof.

You prefer to think of yourself as a person of few words.

You like to live simply, speak simply, and act simply. It's all about editing.

No wonder you're the first person your friends call when they need a mess cleaned up!
