Over the Easter break I made these little gnomes for my boys. But you have to watch them all the time. No sooner do you turn your back on them they have raced off to the woods to play, and climb, and dance around the mushrooms.
These wonderful mushrooms really captured the gnomes attention.
This is the "Good Dye Day" I went to on good friday. What better way to kick off the easter break than with a bit of dyeing at tasknitters place. There were colours amany, some unmentioned people may have a little stash that would indicate a dye addiction. So many great colours and so many different ways of dyeing.
This purple is the lates of my many shades of purple I tried out while dyeing raw fleece. I am really happy with the way the colour takes to raw fleece. Now I will have to spin that up before I can start on the new dyed roving I have just made.
This one worked really well. I used food colouring and was really happy with the brightness of the colours. Who would have thought that the humble food colouring could be so great. I am still waiting for my others to dry so stay tuned for the other colours.
Beware dyeing will also become an obsession for tasknitter.
My life revolves around dogs, family and the change of the weather. You will find me knitting, walking or wondering why nothing much grows in my garden when we have no soil, plenty of rocks and wildlife that loves the plants I try to grow.
I guess you could say that I wish there was more time for me to do and make all those exciting things out there in the world or maybe it is just my inability to use my time wisely. Oh and there is never enough time to read all those books. I really love learning new things, making new things and learning from others. you can find me as bishopstone on ravelry.
