I caught her

I finally caught Fiona this morning with the camera:
Fiona

I dyed some yarn last night, and I'm pretty sure the yarn was too dry when I put the dye on, hence the streakiness in the weird blue color which is supposed to be gunmetal gray:
Another dyeing experiment

I'm not sure it bothers me but I think I need to overdye it in something, because my pal ...

oh, who am I kidding? I already have my pal yarn done, and I'm feeling nervous about it even though my own eyes tell me it's lovely. This yarn is for me. And there is nothing wrong with that.

Sheila asked about the sofa project - it's on hold while my decorator friend is traveling this month. It will probably get done next month. So the fabric is sitting in the little corner of the dining room I optimistically call "the hall" - it's about 4 x 4 and is the segue from dining to bathroom and bedroom.

I have a button left to sew on one piece, but the hoodie is done, the baby sweater is nearly done, and the slippers are knitted, felted and blocked to the right size. Now to find some rug backing! Michael's, I guess.

That yarn is total rockstar. I would name it Ziggy Stardust. Because it is that cool! Good job, you're pal has to love it!

It looks great! Don't worry too much - are you in the WTF group? If so - it's a beginners group. I'm there too - all a little spooky but it's the thought that counts.

I actually think the yarn looks great just the way it is.
