    Back to try again! I’ve decided that I’m not brave enough to try to dye a rainbow yet. While nursing my sick kiddo I keep thinking that maybe a nice mossy green with specks of brown. We’ll see if I get the courage to give it a go. (:

    My two-year-old Imp and I dyed/painted yarn last night. Why haven’t I done this with him before? Sure it was messy, but goodness what fun! It’s still soaking, but I’m fairly certain that his skein is going to be much prettier than mine. (:

  125. Cheryl January 18, 2011 at 5:32 pm #

    Hi Linda,
    Wow what beautiful yarn, I would love the chance to win. I am already imagining what I would love to knit !

  126. Tracy January 18, 2011 at 5:57 pm #


    So sorry to hear of all the weather tragedy in South Africa. We are home today because of freezing rain after two feet of snow just last Wednesday.

    I am happy that you have some beauty to inspire your spinning and knitting. I miss my flowers and garden. I think I am going to have to go buy some flowers when the roads clear.


  127. Ripsimeh January 18, 2011 at 6:22 pm #

    Hi, finally found out how to do this. Love the yarn. I’m a big rainbow yarn fan. Love your items. Love the wonderful way you create knitted creatures. Really wish I could win the yarn but no way. Too many people intering. Maybe buy some for myself latter. Many blessings to you. Ripsimeh.
