time for that experiment

I have a big jar! It’s a 1 gallon mason jar…
mason jar

What I need: about a quart of urine; that shouldn’t be too hard.

What I don’t know: ferment it before adding the lichen or put the lichen in with it and let it all ferment?

Here’s the lichen that’s going in with the experimental liquids. One day I want to be wearing something absolutely fabulous that I make with this dyed yarn and have somebody say something nice about it, and then I can respond “oh thanks, I pissed all over it“.

Recent bit of knitting, for my Spanish teacher,

Fast & Fearless Fingerless Mitts (Ravelry link) by Ellen at Purl Diva.

Christmas… not.ready.
Cortisone… finally, and yay, maybe I’ll get some knitting done.

    I have a feeling that experiment is going to be rather interesting…

    It’s never dull around here, is it?

    Did you pose with the mittens and the apple to look like Twilight on purpose?

    Hopefully you’ll skip photographing some of the steps as you document the process…
