Sorry I haven't updated for a while, been super busy dying yarn, or may hands. I got the slubby in and had the old stove a humping, I of course was having many "OH-My-God-this-Yarn-Sucks" moments, then Barb came, then Kate came and they ooohed and Aaahed appropriately. The damn stuff just wouldn't dry, I was certainly having a fit. got it dyed got it skeined and it was still wet three days later. Poor Trish.Waiting patiently for her yarn. I ended up taking it to her wet, of course it dried immediately.
I was so nervous, I was afraid she wouldn't like it, terrified even. I had spent all her money and made a hideous mistake. She was going to hate it, I just knew it. She was certainly going to wish she had never met me.
So I bundled it all into a bag, took a deep breath and Kate, Oneida and I jumped in the car to drop it off. I got voted to run to the corner for coffee and when I came back they had broken into the stash. witnesses say that our dear Patricia cried. So I guess it was ok after all.
Walking down York street and seeing all that Yarn in the window feels kind of good, people love it. Yay me!!!
Now I feel kind of pompously proud of my Sheep Thrills. I will have to post some photos of it, they are on Kate's blog but I have many many more that I will post soon. Last night was painted merino roving, and I had a blast. more later.
