It has been a wacky few weeks.
Over the holidays, my husband installed a beautiful new kitchen door. What do I do? Trip over some construction debris. A skinned right knee, a twisted left ankle, and worst of all a strained rib muscle. The rib has really slowed me down. (I am resisting the urge to say it is cramping my style. I am such a dork that made me snort!)
My silly 17 pound dog can fend off raccoons at 2 am. That isn't scary. For him. This same dog kept hiding behind my legs because the new kitchen door was creaking in the breeze.
And, the weather here has been freaky. The last few days have been warm, like 65 - 70 degrees F! I am working outside in a t-shirt. Several nights ago we had high gusting winds at night. My condolences to those of you in bitter cold weather right now.
The dye fairies have been taunting me. Some things are mysteriously eluding me, some things are happy accidents (read new colorways!), and some things are really working. It is all over the map.
Red is making me very happy lately. It seems to fit the current mood. Some gorgeous reds are coming out of the dye pots.
Red fleece ready to go to the mill and become Sincere Sheep roving.
Red Wensleydale. Be still my heart.
Red over a brown yak and merino blend. Yowza!
Red fingering weight socks.
I got a new red t-shirt.
And, I have the cutest dog in the world in his new red bed. Love that sleepy face!
I love all these reds!
