Lets Dye!

I've been crunching numbers and I feel the need for some creative outlet. I would like to start natural dyeing again. Back in the day, when the children were wee ones, I remember collecting goldenrod to toil and bubble, almost like a magic potion, but in my case, used for dyeing wool. I need to find my books on the subject and read to refresh my memory. Also I need to get back up to Greenberry House, and buy some fiber for the project. My Ashford is parked in front of a window here at the home. And she is longing to spin. I can tell. Yep! She is getting tired of watching the seasons come and go and no wool to spin. It 's her job , you know!!

Doug

Meet Doug. The first guy in my monster making. I have always had a soft side for monsters, since I was a kid. I love this ones chubby bottom and toothy smile. He is made up of parts from two different toy books and his legs and arms are original. I have a monster book ordered from Amazon on its way by R. Danger. I have joined her Ravelry group and am excited about that! Doug is a food monster. He especially loves to eat pizza, chicken wings, and barbecue ribs, very messy. And he also is an avid TV watcher. He likes to watch sports and comedies. He steals the remotes and likes to play pranks on his family. When he grows up he wants to be a UPS driver. He thinks he is the :King of Queens". Sound familiar?  His body is knitted from my very own hand spun. I dyed the wool while it was a roving and spun it on my Ashford Traditional. So Doug is also dyed in the wool. I think he is going to like it here in our home.  Come join my main blog at: http://knitsticks.blogspot.com/

Happy Feet! & Happy New Year!

These two pairs of socks were knit with Happy Feet, dk yarn. I gifted both pair for Christmas as presents.
The left I call Strawberry Shake, hence pink and mute pink colors. And on the right is Amish Night. Knitted toe up and with gusseted heel. SOCKS FROM THE TOE UP, Wendy D. Johnson's instructions on the how to do so.
