Now every time I go for the mailbox/ gotta hold myself down - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Now every time I go for the mailbox/ gotta hold myself down
...Sorry, couldn't resist a bit of "Katrina and the Waves" gallows humor after spending the last three days all but glued to Disaster News Network, I'm a little punchy from it. But I did practically skip all the way over to the post office and back to pick up my package of yarn, which included four fresh experimental subjects for dyeing as well as a few oddments to bring my order up to the free-shipping threshold. (By .13, which I'm sure must annoy them no end. :) ) Still on enough of a yarn-high even now that I'm not in complete shrieking hysterics about what Snip just caught in the kitchen. Juveniles are the worst sign... The irony is that only Monday I was finding myself a little squicked watching Lilo & Stitch by the way Stitch moves on six legs. Not that I'm entirely sanguine about this sudden reoccurrence of The Issue, but knowing that we're caught up on the rent and have been for some while now, and therefore in decent enough standing to ring up the landlady and shriek at her until Measures are Taken, does help immeasurably. At least compared to before. Either that or all the acetic acid in the powdered kool-aid is already beginning to rot out my brain...

So, the results of Powdered Drink Mix Dyeing Experiment #2:

Again, not the greatest color -- my scanner simply isn't very sensitive to green, for some reason, even when the lid's not half-cocked. (And just wrote "half-coked" there at first, but that's another sort of hardware issue altogether. :) ) The greenish balls are for a specific project; the orange, which is lace-weight, awaits my Muse to come back from whatever hole she's crawled into this time. (She now appears to be working on something titled "Lift me up: Theistic interpretations of the early music of Howard Jones", which is either a Ph.D thesis or a really postmodernistic attempt at epic poetry, from the notes she's been leaving scattered on the bathroom floor. I suspect she may be two-timing me with a grad student.)

Pretty! It looks like it turned out well.

Pretty yarn! Eventually I know I'll delve into the crack of dyeing my own yarn.

And I love the way you wrote that entry :)

That is some pretty yarn.

D'oh! I thought I was original when I thought of that Katrina & the waves reference.
