I joined the Mystic Light KAL. This is the first time I have every done anything like this and it seems like so much fun. No knowing what the final piece is going to look...scary but fun. I have dyed up 2 skeins of yarn that I am going to use for this. I know a lot of people are using fire as an inspiration for there colors of choice. But, when I first heard of this I though of the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. So I dyed up a skein of purples, blues and a little red.

I pulled out the dedicated dye pot and just started pouring dye in. The first skein came out damn good as-far-as I am concerned.
The second...Ummm, not so good. A friend said that the brown/green areas kinda looks like decaying flesh. Nice.

I finally got some Malabrigo. Sqeeeee! The Silky Wool is for a sweater for Paul. It is a nice healthered black. Not pictured are 2 skeins of Cascade 220 in a lovely deep red, 3 skeins of Cascade heathers for a Clapotis, and another skein of Cascade 220 just for whatever, probably a hat. Good trip!

I joined Knitwars check out the blog for more info. I have been resisting and I don't know why, most anything that lime 'n violet do is fun. And this is fun. I am going to do something that Miss V. talked about, were the gold coins earned represent money that can be spent on yarn. Anyway, good time, go join...do it, do it, do it.

I dyed 2 skeins and plan to knit a clapotis. Believe it or note this started of as turquoise and purple. I didn't like that much so I overdyed it with magenta and got this lovely plum type color.
I am currently working on dyeing up several skeins to go on my etsy shop. I am doing a series on the movie Howl's Moving Castle.

Reservations are made for St. Augusting in April. Probably one of my favorite cities. It is so full of tourist, but I don't care. Can't wait to go.
