Look what Brianne made for me!:

The colors are actually darker than in my photo (what is it with my camera?), but look at all that yarn! And a gorgeous bag and some Kid Silk Haze – now I can see why everyone calls it “Crack Silk Haze”! Thanks, Brianne!

That was the best part of my day. I spent the rest of the day attempting to dye two skeins of yarn with Wilton dyes. I had some crazy idea that there wasn’t enough for socks with one skein, so I would dye both together (and waste them both). The yellow came out gorgeous, but the red and burgundy did not work out. Then I spent more time trying to redye it all burgundy, and ended up not getting the color to set. Gallons (not literally) of vinegar later, it’s not looking good. And I’ve probably felted the yarn. We’ll see when it dries tomorrow.
