More Dyeing

This dyeing thing is becoming addictive. I dyed some green and pink (it isn't quite as vibrant as the picture). Kind of a mistake as I ran out of green dye and I didn't write down how I made it so I left some white.
It was a good mistake though as I reskeined it and I love it.
We have managed to get out of the house the last 2 days and we all feel much better for it. I joined the gym which is the best thing. The girls love the creche and I get an hour with no one screaming at me. I went yesterday and I managed to work my new ipod and not fall off the back of the treadmill. I was pretty impressed with myself.

AAhh funny! I can just imagine myself falling off - so well done Kate!
I love the new skein - you have to know that pink and green should always be seen (my favourite colours!!)
Have a great weekend, Kathryn.

that wool went from "ok" to "wow" after the skeining. A gym....sounds good, no one screaming at you for an hour....sounds even better!

lol! You can do the treadmill without falling off the back? I am impressed!!! Your kids must be excellent. I joined a gym when my first 2 were young and they hated the creche. The bad part was that it was immediately under the room I exercised in, so all of my exercising was done to their screams! But I was determined to do it, so I listened to their screams!

Tee hee! Great about the working out. And I know how you feel about the treadmill...those things scare me every time I get on one...I have this vision of me going backwards. Great yarn! You cannot beat pink and green...as far as I am concerned that wins all the time. I have a green toenail polish that would match that superbly :)
