Single yarn dyeing

Experimenting on single yarn lace Base: Malabrigo Lace, Natural Dyes: Country classics mix of Mountain aqua and charcoal produced a light grey blue Base: Malabrigo Lace, Pearl Dyes: Country classics Poppy red, on grey yarn produced a vintage pink Single yarn takes any dye very fast and uniformly. It is also easier to make pastel colors. I like to knit that yarn a lot. It is so soft and so thin that I can easily use it for my baby designs.

An evening at the ball park

April means baseball season in the US. I was lucky enough to be at the ATT park to see the SF Giants play against the Oakland A's. "We are Giants" We had the best seats in the whole stadium Of course we needed hot dogs, it is a baseball must!! I was surprised to find a Montreal classic so far away from Quebec. It was a great evening, great game, can't wait to be back here in June with my coworkers...
