I overdyed a sweater using the superconcentrated chagga tea I made from the chagga sawdust. It looked a little too scary to consume… though I suppose we could have dried the sawdust and made tea with that.
It was a heathery denim blue. Now it’s darker with a slight greenish tint in the light. As though it was something between “sky” and “indigo” and is now something like “moss” in this photo. It also fulled a bit so it fits me better now. Not very exciting I know…
something for MIL
Couple more pictures and details over on my Ravelry project page.
I’m thinking the other pair will be white, with a cable up the back, probably out of either my handspun merino top or the angora/alpaca that Cathy-Cate gave me last year at Rhinebeck.
Just so you know, no mushroom experiments on any people, and certainly not on my MIL (who I like very much).
Finally making mittens with the icelandic yarn I spun in March. Not sure yet if this is good, the plain portion is the liner in the cuff (hopefully it’ll fit in what looks to be and probably is the smaller outside portion), and I’m not entirely sure yet what the pattern will be… guess I’ll find out as I go.
waaa waaa waaa
Some respiratory virus, not the flu, not congested, but exhausted and coughing and sound like I’ve smoked for 40 years and drank cheap whisky for 50.
Got some dvd’s from the library and The Tudors (season 1 and 2) kept me entertained for a day and a half! Yowza! Now I’m in withdrawal… though I see that the first episode of season 3 is available to watch on line.
Edited: ACK! I wondered why season 2 picked up and there were some things that seemed like they didn’t cover in season 1. I figured it was just moving the show along. But when I started watching the season 3 first episode, I knew something was wrong, because the preview of “what’s happened so far” showed several things with Jane Seymour. SO… what I learned is that the library’s “full first and second seasons” are missing dvd’s! They each only have 2, and should have 4. sigh sigh sigh…
