a pretty pair of socks

and one roving
merino roving

if you think it looks kind of like entrails now, you should have seen it when it was still rolled up in plastic wrap and oozing dye. Have you ever seen a human placenta?

I think it will look fine spun up.

It was sunny, windy, shirtsleeve weather when I left Greensboro around 1:30pm, and raining when I arrived in W-S. Knit Picky is an adorable yarn shop located in a former residence, and still feels like a home. I knew I would like the people there, when I went to wash my hands and found a budgie in the bathroom! Cute little guy. We pretty much filled up the kitchen, and had great fun getting creative and messy. We took the group pics at the end, and it was COLD outside by then. It was Niki, I think, who put it so well, “a good day to dye”.

  1. How funny, Mandy just asked if I had met you and I followed the link and thought,
    Hey I’m in that picture (but I’m blinking d’oh!)” It was nice meeting you!

    Your roving turned out very pretty, mine the colors didn’t set long enough in the microwave I think so a lot of it leaked out but I’m going to try that technique again soon.

  2. Hey! Love the yarn…my fav is the roving. Very pretty colors together. Can’t wait to see it spun. So glad to have you visit the shop. I did the class on Sunday and had a ball!
