Ok I finally decided I had the guts to try and dye some of my own sock yarn. I received this from my secret pal last summer during the first summer swappers event on www.knittinghelp.com. This yarn is knitpicks Fingerweight 100% wool sock yarn. I used koolaid to dye my yarn. The colors I had were Blue, Red, Orange and Green. Once it is completed dried, I will post another finished product. Lane was a big help. He was told NOT to touch the yarn b/c I was afraid the Koolaid would dye his little fingers. You can see for yourself how well he listened!

So I just have to get through the next 3 days, of course they have to be work days for mikie so I don't get much relief/help until he is home from work.
Only a few more months of this nasty mess and then hopefully the time will be right for another one and then I can just be done with periods. I wont be sad to see my insides go. I've been in so much pain since I was 16....
Ugh.. Bad day..

I was able to knit about an inch on it last night. I am using caron yarn. The color is a dusty rose. I am so excited about it. I am using a pattern called "waves". It came from my knitpicks.com afghan kit. I think it will be something different. Atleast I hope so.
I hope to get another inch or so knitted today. I want to get a few little goodies for the knitter after me to throw into the box. Hopefully I can finish it all up and get it out by the end of the week or early next week. That's my goal atleast. Then it's back to working on projects I currently have yarn for.
So there's my excitement for the day! I can't wait to see how these blankets turn out. I hope we can "vote" on which charities they go to. It would be nice to spread the love around I think!

You are The Star
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised
The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.
