Well, It's a whole week since posting, I can't believe time goes so quickly.

As usually, I've been dyeing and spinning, the weekend was especially fruitful and I managed to dye some fabulous sock yarns. Where's the photo's you may ask?? We'll I haven't made enough money yet to buy a camera, but I'm working on it. Plus Carmen is in Spain getting married - How selfish! (actually I am making my way to Madrid on Thursday to attend the happy event! YEAH!!) so Carl you need to come around and take some photo's for me sweetie!

So I'll tempt you with words until the pictures arrive.

So imagine you are in a very cold place and just as you were thinking about how much you hate winter, someone hands you a gorgeous warm jumper with the softest squishiest yarn, in purples and pinks, well the yarn I dyed on Sunday will be that squishy warm jumper.

Then imagine a grumpy gray day in need of colour and brightness, then you look down at your feet and see the brightest socks with oranges, pinks and yellows, mmmm, you can almost smell the oranges - my sock yarn will be those socks.

Then switch to a summer evening, watching the sunset with a glass of champers, you feel a little chili so you pick up your soft pink, pure silk boucle wrap with the most fabulous drape and wrap it around your shoulders, - my pure silk boucle I dyed will be that wrap.

Enough! Please! I want to knit now! :-(

Anyway I'm in the process of writing up Carmen's pattern, and the secret project is coming on in leaps and bounds. All will be revealed soon.

Pic's soon.
