Ok, maybe I'm getting good at this...

Two things... Knitting!

The first of two Bella's Mittens... Pattern is AWESOME! Made for my cousin's 15th birthday. She loved them (even though there's only one for her left hand so far, lol).

And second... Kool-Aid dying!


The Ravelry Group "What a Kool Way to Dye" has a DAL (dye-a-long) this month and you are supposed to use a painting as your inspiration. I've loved Alphonse Mucha's work forever, so I used one of his prints, La Primevere, as my inspiration. Pretty good match, huh? The roving started out as mill end roving from Sheep Shed Studios and I hand dyed it with Kool-Aid, and Crystal Lightish single serve packets. I LOVE IT! Now to spin it up and figure out what in the heck to make with it!

That painting is beautiful. That's what you should put in the guest bath and then you can knit a towel or something ;o)
