This first one is the signature colorway for the 52 pair plunge KAL. As you can tell, I have not yet reskeined it, and the colors are in their full glory, albeit separate. Once I've reskeined it, the color distribution should fall such that I will get really neat stripes on my socks. If you look at the Dyemanics yarn website under "new yarns", you will see it re-skeined and you can tell the color distribution better.
Here's a little Black Eyed Susan that snuck in, from my yard.
This next hank is the sportweight version of Allison and Melanie's Dyenamics yarn. This is the one you see me pondering on Melanie's blog. I ended up dipping into dark chocolate (dye!) and deep turquoise. Allison is predicting stripes of a width of one round!
I cannot wait to get my current project, which is due a week from Monday, off the needles, so I can start these socks.
Meanwhile, my email accounts are dying a slow death and I am feeling terribly disconnected....I can still send emails out, but nothing is coming in. Instead, all emails I received on the last day the email was fully functioning, keep loading over and over again and I am unable to delete them. Yes I am desperate. Any geeks out there who have heard of this and know of a remedy? DH wants to try a few things with it, we'll see. Other than that, if anyone wants to get in touch with me, leave me a comment, or call me!
I also got to thinking....after I got all worried about how I will get in touch with people, how I feel so disconnected, and how it's such a terrible tragedy that I can't freaking email anyone, and how I am cut off from my lists, etc., incidentally, my mother brought my attention to these situations; we were talking on the phone today and she told me that the weather has never been this severe in all her lifetime.
Then I found this: Asia
And in more news: how to put your personal tragedy in perspective.
My tragedy is such a small one. A knitter's and blogger's tragedy. Minuscule. And it can be fixed.
You know what? I am so so glad that there are people like Allison and Melanie. They're the kind of people who make the world a better place simply by being who they are. Thanks, girls! :)
