  • New Thing Learned for 12 March: "Aztec gold" dye mixes best with other funky colors like "gold ocher" and "chestnut", presumably because they've all got traces of red and blue in them. (If I try to match it up with anything else, it pitches a fit and wrecks the other colors.) [Source: latest round of dyeing.]

Speaking of dye, I'm about halfway through the foot of the first sock out of the yarn you gabe me. It's turning out to be very interesting!

Re: Socks!

... Interesting good, or interesting... "interesting"? :)

BTW, interested at all in lace knitting? I've got a skein of blue&white laceweight left over from the last batch of eBaying, yours if you want it...

Re: Socks!

I'm not sure about the mint green with the lime... Interesting. But they'll be warm, and definitely not boring!

I'm starting to play with lace... I'll happily take it!
