Thanks for your suggestions on smells that might go well with Turmeric to create a sock yarn that, while still scented, would not immediately offend. I am happy to report that I have not had to go to any of these measures: My spouses’s suggestion of hanging the yarn in front of a window with a fan blowing on them worked shockingly well. It’s actually weird how well it worked.
So now I have completely finished dyeing and rinsing my yarn. huzzah! Now all that’s left is the long, labor-intensive work of re-skeining. My coworker Bonita, Lady of the Swiftest Needles in All the Land, had an extra swift lying around to donate to my cause. As a result, my reskeining work is cut in half. Double huzzah! But I still have more thousands of yards to wind from swift to swift by hand than I have the heart to contemplate.
So, between reskeining, Easter, going out of town for my birthday, and the odd expectation of my family that I might actually want to be social with them around the anniversary of my birth, my knitting isn’t likely to get any less boring for you to look at any time soon. So as a consolation, I give you a picture of the only yarn that I have successfully reskeined so far – three new colors of sock yarn.
They’ll be available at the Sheep & Wool festival, at the Cloverhill booth, which is in the biggest barn I think (doesn’t that sound like something I should know?).
If you need me, I’ll be duct-taping my arm back on after it falls off from spinning a swift all day.
