"There's your plan and then there is the god's plan . . ."

To quote one of my favorite cartoons, The Road to El Dorado (Which I need to buy the Dvd soon since my VHS is getting old, but anyways . . .) So, the yarn that I planned to dye for a color-work sweater/vest is not going to be happening. The Yarn Gods had their own idea of how the yarn would accept the dye. So far, the purple separated and is not a solid; the green turned out perfectly, if a little light; the blue has separated and is a variety of teal/blue/purple . . . I still have to dye the black. I think they dyed up nice colors so far, just not what I had wanted for that project. So, they will end up being something different, what I have no idea yet. Maybe some thick and warm winter socks . . . who knows. Oh well, I guess it wasn't meant to be.

I finished Rhoni's scarf:

Action shot, almost didn't post it though, I kind of look like crap. Blame being sick the last couple days and giving blood today(more on that tomorrow). You can't really see the pink stripe when it's on.

Folded picture.

It took a while, because I am still figuring out the loom and it is tolerating me some of the time. I like how the scarf turned out though and hope Rhoni will too. I will post pictures tomorrow with the issue I am having with the loom and see if anyone can help me.

More tomorrow, see you then!


  1. I like the scarf! Sorry to hear about the dye problems...I'm sure you'll find something fun to do with it. =)

  2. Rhoni is going to love it, that is so her.
