Kind Cori from Edmonton sent me some blue and green Kool Aid yesterday. I was sitting at the table when it arrived, planning my housework.
Perhaps I exaggerate: I was drinking a cup of tea, looking around at the state of the place and thinking, "Look at the state of this place!" In other words, I was in the Critical Housework Planning Phase. But I couldn't just ignore such a thoughtful gift, now, could I? No, I couldn't, so I did a little dyeing instead.
The red is a bit of a mistake. I had about 100g wool and I didn't want to spread the colours too thin because I wanted to keep the green and blue as vivid as possible. As a result, I added red and ended up with a kind of lollipop-coloured yarn, the kind of lollipops your parents forbade you to eat because the artificial colours put you on a sugar high. Brilliant!
