It's all your fault!


You know who you are don't you....??
It was all that talk of KoolAid and yarn that did it! My new friend
Marianne is to blame.....
I did very well with my fingers for such a long time and then..I just thought I'd try a bit of sprinkling on the wet wool, well it just sat on the top so I had to mudge it in with my fingers and now I have got these really interesting colours stuck in the skin and nails of my fingers. The yarn is on the line, blowing in the wind, it looks really funky and I think I will be making a pair of slipper socks for Maisie out of the boucle stuff I dyed.
Ali gave me a 'happy' present just before Christmas, she's a darling and looks after her poor old Mum, in this parcel were some lovely things to make me smile, even Jez my SIL had bought me some delights from Lush...what I am getting at is there were two balls of yarn in the parcel and some Koolaid for me to play with. Today I played with the stuff and loved every minute. Barry says the house smells like a sweet shop, yummmmmm

Oh dear.....always wear gloves, always....and I dilute the powder in a bit of water...but always wear gloves...I'm thinking you know this but you were just too excited and wanted to start right in, eh? (ask me how I know this could be true).....
Can't wait to see your funky yarn! ;^)
