Weekending

I thought that I'd finish knitting Gin's In Threes on Friday night while I watched some basketball. Alas, the game demanded all of my attention, eventually ending in a one-point at-the-buzzer OT heartbreak for the Badgers, and by then my energy was completely sapped (plus, it was getting late).

So I finished on Saturday night, instead, and gave it a bath yesterday. I haven't had a chance yet to root around for buttons.

I finally found made some time for dyeing on Saturday!

I played around a bit, had a request for red, never intentionally dyed a basic black before, and love the blue-green-gold combo, so there's "Playful," "Red," "Basic Black," and "Aegean." I dropped off 2-4 hanks of each at the coffee shop on my way to work today.

I had a nice chat with Annie on Sunday morning. She said that the redbuds are blooming in Valencia; I said, "Send me a picture!"

This is just one tree! There are rows of them lining the street in some places. We had such a dreary, gray & wet weekend, it was really nice to see some color!

It's dreary and wet here, too. Thanks for the pops of color -yarn and trees and sweaters and all!

Love the little sweater for Gin and I know your pictures of her in it will be so cute! I also love the yarn. You got a great red and perfect black. Our redbuds are just starting to bloom, but the rain is beating on them today. Hope they get a chance to shine in the sun.

Gin's sweater turned out so nicely! And, your dyed yarn...I love it!

The redbud picture reminds me of the jacarandas in Southern California. It's like driving through a purple tunnel and then later, purple snow everywhere.

I too thought of the Jacqarandas. So lovely!

Darling sweater for Gin...gorgeous yarn...Beautiful redbud. Thank you!! No buds on our redbud yet. Grey, foggy, damp this morning, but the sun finally did come out!

Like everyone else, I'm enjoying all your photos today - fiber and flora! I'm looking forward to seeing Gin modeling her sweet sweater and geranium dress. And that redbud against the yellow building is just what I want to see after a grey and rainy day (really week) here. Thanks for sharing some color joy!

Oh! That redbud! It made my heart skip a beat. . .

And your yarn! I LOVE the colors -- and especially "Playful." It looks like so much fun!
