F.O. Report

First, though, the sky from last Saturday; yes, I was up early! Had to be up to get ready for the second of my three Moebius classes. I had gotten a few more rounds done on my hat, but was nowhere near done, as I had hoped to be. But the two hours of uninterrupted knitting time in class were just what I needed. I came home with only fifteen rounds left to do, and finished up that evening. So, may I present my fourth finished (knitted) object of the year, the Reversible Lotus Blossom Hat.

Yes, I know, I haven't posted pix of any of the other F.O.s. I'll try to remedy that situation soon. Now it's time to start my second moebius project, so that I can get help in class if I run into any problems.

In other news, I did some yarn dyeing this week with my two favorite Koolaid colors, Berry Blue and Cherry, as well as some Wilton's frosting color in Violet. The Koolaid yarn came out great, just as I had envisioned. The Wilton color did not dye as I had hoped; it's more of a variegated blue and purple, but I still like it. Now I'll have to try again for a deep purple. I, of course, forgot to take pictures of the yarn before winding it into balls, so this picture will have to do...
Yes, as a matter of fact, I do enjoy bright colors; why do you ask?

well, now I know what you've been up to!

Nice hat, a little sedate in color, but it will go with more (grin)

I like the yarn....what are you using as mordant? (and what are you planning to knit with these lovelies?)
