Black and blue, beep-beep
Beep-beep first. This week's Ten on Tuesday is 10 Best Bumper Stickers You've Ever Seen. Ahem. Well, bumper stickers stick better to bumpers than then they do to my brain! I'm not good at remembering jokes, either. I like clever and eye-catching art and graphics, helpful and hopeful messages reminding us to be green and love thy neighbor and let there be peace on earth -- the symbolic COEXIST epitomizes that, pretty much and is definitely one of the best I've ever seen. And humor is always good.
There is one bumper sticker (of many) that Katie had on her first Saab (way back when she was still in high school!) that a) I will never forget and b) I still often quote:
SPEAK YOUR MIND EVEN IF YOUR VOICE SHAKES

Let's look at some yarn.
Last time it was an ant, this time a flying bug -- I don't know why they're always wanting to be in the yarn photos.
Darn it. This is supposed to be blue and orange. Do you see any hint of blue? Neither do I!
Perhaps the lesson might be learned now?
I rather love it, and I'm sure I'll use it, it's just not what it was supposed to be. I shall try again.
Meanwhile, I had a hank of green Galway worsted that I threw in at the end to soak up the remainders of the "dark blue" and I love the subtle change.
Well. . . maybe not blue-blue, but beautiful all the same! Love ALL three colors. (I'm the very same way about bumper stickers and jokes; they never stick with me.)

It's not blue but it's a happy accident, I'd say. The Coexist bumper sticker is my favorite, too.

That bumper sticker is perfect!! It shall stick in my mind, too. What's not to love about either skein! Very happy accidents, I'd say.

Katie's bumper sticker is perfect -- something we should all remember.

I've been loving all your hand-dyed yarns, and am wondering how you're dyeing them? Big vats of colour? Squirt bottles?
