GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

kool wool!

what's that cooking? nope, it's not food...

...it's yarn!

tonight i decided to try my hand at hand painting (dyeing) yarn. i had a skein of lion brand fisherman's wool in "natural" that bubba gave me for Christmas just begging for some color. i really had no clue what i was doing, but i found instructions to follow here. the best part--i could use up some of the old kool-aid packets i've had sitting in my stash for years! so i chose to do 4 colors: berry blue, pink lemonade (i ran out and used a little strawberry too), lemonade + a little berry blue to make a bright green, and also ice blue raspberry lemonade.

here's how it looked while cooling:

now it's hanging over my tub to dry. then i can wind it into a ball and start knitting! woohoo!

yarn is so much fun! i just can't get enough!!!!!
