Vacation's over, going back to work in the morning. Definitely needed the break, but I'm ready to go back. Started and finished a pair of Carolina socks (Socktopia) in time to wear first day back, brown/orange/cream Trekking XXL with solid brown heels. Cast on for Broad Street convertible mitten/gloves from Knitty, Maxi Ringel blue/red/grey stripes I won online awhile back when SixSox ran a CIC sock drive. Not a yarn I would have chosen, not interested in using it for socks so gloves it is.
Played with crock pot dyeing today, ended up with a darker orange than I was expecting but still very nice. It's lightened up some as it's drying. There were a few spots that initially looked dark red, still darker in some spots and lighter than others but that nearly-solid effect is the whole point of kettle dyeing, isn't it?
Yes, I've taken photos, but no time to edit & upload tonight. Already up too late as it is. What else is new?
