GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.
(Psa 32:7 MSG)


more kool wool!

yup. that's right. i dyed the rest of that ball of yarn night before last. was going to just do what was left as one ball, but as i wrapped it into hanks, i discovered many places in this yarn where it had been knotted back together. grrr! so i removed the knots and ended up with 5 hanks instead of one. it actually made it more fun because i was able to try a few different color combos instead of just one. i even let bubba try his hand at painting one of the small hanks of yarn--he really enjoyed it too!

ball #1: "citrus"
colors = orange, slammin' strawberry-kiwi, and lemonade

ball #2: "surf 'n' sand"
colors = berry blue, orange

ball #3: "Maui sunset"
colors = orange, cherry, slammin' strawberry-kiwi, lemonade

ball #4: "smooshed berries"
colors = berry blue, cherry (smooshed together to make purple!)

ball #5: bubba's yarn (he chose the colors and painted this himself...with a little help from mommy)
colors = berry blue, lemonade, cherry

i think half the fun was coming up with names for each color combo. it really got my creative juices flowing though! and i have plenty more kool-aid. just need more undyed yarn to paint! :-)
