What I Did (Dyed) This Week

I finally sat down this week and dyed something for myself! Yes, finally! All these months of dyeing, and never did I once say, "I need to create something special for myself".. but, here it is:

10 different shades of green, 10 mini-stripes... I give you IRELAND :)



I think I'll start knitting these once I finish up my sockpal socks. Now, I just need to get to Ireland to see if the colors fit. May 20th, can't wait!

In other dyeing news, I did a few new colorways this week in addition to the 60 or so other skeins that are all now on their way to their new homes. Here is Rockstar (thanks for the name Alison) and Black Olive (this one is for you Paula!).



And last but not least, a big thanks goes out to Raquel for sending me a HUGE Bath and Body Works bag. I have such great customers! She sent me this bag to carry all my packages in :)

"Ireland" is beautiful, and it definitely has many of the shades of green that you will see in the countryside when you go there in May.
