(no subject) @ 01:35 am

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?

Glad you had the time off!

The orange yarn sounds lovely! Am glad you had that time off, and were able to relax with your knitting. Congratulations also on the meditation practice; even when you can't keep up every day, it helps when you can do it. Sending you good energy for your work . . .
