So I've decided to try and blog a picture as often as I can. I've been really bad about this. I mean, it's not like I don't have free time, right?

Here's my latest yarn dying: pastels. I only did these because I had an eight ounce skein of Lion Fisherman's wool, and when I tried to unwind it on my swift so I could dye it, I kept coming across breaks in the yarn. I cut it every time I found a break, and this is what I ended up with.

The hanks were too small to dye into colorway, yet too big to turn into dryer balls, so I dyed some semi-solids. I like how they turned out, and they are stocked on Bella Tesori now. I think they'd make a really cute pair of stripey longies or a sweater!
