Paper paper everywhere

I'm away from work for 6 days, and see what happens?

Ok, well maybe you can't really see, it's a bad picture.

In any case, I was greeted on my first day back to work with shredded paper scattered about my work area. I'm guessing my boss's kittens got to the bag of shreds, or maybe the boss and coworker just wanted to pretend they had lots of money.

We've Moved!

Hi all, we've moved! Boy do we have a lot of crap. It of course took us a whole lot longer to move everything. I'll try to have pictures soon.

PS, some of you pay heard of an accident on the 110 on Friday morning. That was me! I'm famous. Though would have preferred becoming famous in a different way.

I'm ok, a bit sore, and wasn't much help in the move, but other than that I seem to be fine.

More hand-spun yarn

So a post or two ago I showed off my hand-dyed hand-spun yarn.
I just finished dyeing the rest of the skein.

Step 1) Spin it.
Step 2) Wind it into a hank, then let it soak for at least 20 minutes with a small amount of liquid detergent.

Step 3)Dye. I turned on the heat, let it heat up for about five minutes, then I put some acid dye in first (that's what gave it the blue tint). The kool aid went next, with a small amount of black cherry poured on sections of the hank, and a large amount of grape on one side. I continued keeping it over the heat for another 5-10 minutes, then turned down the burner, and let it sit until it cooled down. Step 4) Let it dry.

Ta da.
