Not So Mellow Yellow

I think this roving came out really pretty. I love the color especially since we have had some pretty dull grey days lately.

I used food coloring this time instead of Kool Aid. I am going to start spinning it today.

I am not sure if I am going to knit or weave with the finished yarn.

Bye for now!

I'm Seeing Red!

I started knitting my ankle socks using the the roving I dyed.
I am pleased with how it is knitting up. I think the coloring is pretty. I may dye more roving today. I will see how I feel.

Also, I am posting a better picture of my shawl. I don't think my last picture did it must justice.

Bye for now!

Things are getting back to normal now. My son is back on his feet not quite running but walking fast with a limp. I really don't like to post too much about my personal life but back in March my son broke his femur. He is doing much better now and I am very happy.

In other news, I was given a 24inch Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom for Mother's Day. I really like it a lot and the size if perfect for weaving shawls.

I've been working on this shawl for about a month.

I am ok with how it turned out. I wanted it to be a bit longer but my warp tension was a bit off. So, I got feed up with it and decided to finish it off.

I dyed some roving today using Kool-aide. I like the color as I really didn't mind how it turned out as long as it didn't felt. I am hoping to start spinning this weekend. I am going to knit some socks.

Well, that is it for now!
