Ahoy maties!

Captain Feathersword's (The Wiggles) influence. Although I have noticed a bit of a "Pirates of the Carribean" theme going around.

I've skeined seven balls ...


I've dyed six skeins ...


and thar they be! Two more "Canadian A?!", two "Iceberg Alley" and two "Northern Backyard"

Five more balls to skein then six more skeins to dye. Next up are some greens and hopefully a pink/red combo.

My boys having a go at each other. What is it with boys and rough play?


They fought and pestered each other all morning and then fifteen minutes before naptime ...

    and your yard is soooo green! we're on level 3 restrictions in brisbane. ??!! that means no watering unless using a bucket or a watering can. no hose whatsoever. my yard? dead.
    sounds silly, but i'd print out that photo with the dyed yarn and the green lawn and frame it. it's a nice photo!

  • Ahoy Dorothy! (love the pirate theme) The dyed wool looks fantastic - and so cheery hanging on the line. Very impressed. Can't wait to see the next batch. And your kiddies are too cute. Love the commentary yesterday and today. Especially loved the line about "the child" picking up her crayons. Very funny. Have a great weekend!

  • That hand-dyed yarn looks very yummy!

    Thanks for the lacy cloth pattern.. It givs me something new to try this morning before everyone wakes up. Have a great weekend!
