Squeaker

Having just realized that I've only posted once this month (Bad monkey!), I thought I'd squeak one in at the last minute, to save the three and a half readers I might (might!!!) have left. (Hi, y'all!)

Another successful trip to Mad Potter, where I stole color ideas from Lisa and polka dots from Wendy, resulted in a new plate. Everybody needs a new plate, right?



That's a dark chocolate brown plate with some white, tan, brown, and various shades of blue polka dots, in case your monitor doesn't want to show you the right colors (and in case my monitor/camera isn't being honest with me). I heart it.

Something I'm really looking forward to in April is the Spring Sockstravaganza happening at the yarn store with my sock clubbers on the 18th. We're having a day-long event where we're going to dye sock yarn, swap sock yarn, give away scads of door prizes, potluck our lunch, and knit socks to our hearts' content. I can't wait.

In preparation, my friend Lisa, the professional-yarn-and-roving-and-wool-dyer, gave me a brief and informative lesson on dying yarn, so that I'll have a tiny clue what I'm talking about on the 18th. Here's my result:



That's a dark teal with a bright orange, in case you're wondering how I could possibly want to put those two colors together. (This, I explained, is why I wear jeans or khaki pants with solid colored shirts. Tough to mess that up.) I'm actually really excited about winding up this yarn and knitting something with it. Any good suggestions? It's about 200 yards of worsted weight yarn. And its, uh... teal and orange. Thoughts?

The yarn is really cool! And I don't think it says anything about your ability to dress yourself. You look fine.

Obviously you should make socks with it. Or a hat. With earflaps. And a huge pompom.

I like the plate. I like it a lot. Probably because....I MADE IT FIRST! No joke, I thought it was a pic of MY plate that I made back in November. Fishy. You haven't heard the last of this. Check my blog for an in depth investigative report later this week...
