Tie One On

Tie One On from Knitty, in Karabella Lace Mohair. The picture really doesn't do it justice. I'll be wearing this next month at my sister's wedding, over a silk tank dress that's blue and white. I know, it's an August wedding, but it's in Oregon, so the weather might do anything!

And speaking of Knitty, the summer issue is up. It's the Man Issue. I doubt I'll find anything there that I must knit--hubby never, ever wears sweaters. The only hats and gloves he wears are while skiing, and he prefers acrylic and nylon. Ah, but I do have a scarf planned for him in some scrumptious chocolate-colored alpaca. Right now, though, I can't even think about scarves. It's been above 100 degrees every day for over a week.

Dyeing for More

Allison's on vacation, so this was yesterday's project, in her choice of colors: pink lemonade, lemon-lime, black cherry, and grape. We did manage to spill a bunch of the dye all over the table, the floor, and Allison's leg (narrowly missed the dog, who would look pretty in black cherry), but it did clean up okay. Allison, at least, got to jump in the pool to wash up.
