One new sock yarn

Loving my new acid dyes! They're so easy to use and produce such pretty colors. :) Just wish my sock yarns would arrive already so that I could dye some more. Argh, I'm having serious withdrawal symptoms from not being able to dye anything!

I have a sock!

one down, one to go!, originally uploaded by RainbowDash2008.

Yes, that's right, one sock. Still have to knit the other one.. I'm participating in a KAL based on Cookie A's book Sock Innovation (on Ravelry) and this is the first pair we're knitting. I've cast on for the second sock, but haven't made it past the ribbing. Well, I still have one week to go..

First official blog post and two new yarns

Hello Blogworld!

After much procrastination I finally decided to start my own blog. Here you will read about knitting, yarn dyeing, my ever-growing stash and life in general. I might even throw in some crochet once in a while, to keep the suspense up. :)

For now I have two new yarns to show you, the green one a brand new one, the red one is an over-dye. I just got my new acid dyes a while back and have just started to try them out. Once I get more yarn later in the week, I should be able to show off loads more dyeings than just these two. Oh, btw, Wild Poppies is for sale in my Etsy-shop.

Next time I might even have some knitting to show off. :)
