Skeins of Happiness

Last night I was unable to get to the computer in time to post, so I saved up my happy until it was mostly all dried, and took a few snaps for y'all. The above basket contains several representative skeins of the worsted weight, merino superwash that, along with a big boost of help from Monday Mandi, I was able to get dyed up last night. They don't have "official names" yet, but here's some of what's new at the shop.
These are my special favorite, done in both the worsted and a fingering weight merino. I'm calling it "Witch's Britches"... don't ask why, but it struck me funny, and one doesn't argue with medicated genius. Here, look closer... isn't it gorgeous?
That is how I 'rest'. The throat pain was so omnipresent, I threw myself into dyeing, for the sake of distraction. I may need to go thank that doc for my days of misery. Tortured artist, indeed. C

I watched the first two episodes of "Heroes" (I watch on the internet the next day after they air on TV.) and it is my opinion that they effed it up royally. In your previous post you had mentioned that you expected it to be screwed up this year (as I did) and we were not wrong. What say you? Or maybe it was more interesting while stoned. Darn. I should have tried that!

My holiday themed brain isn't working - but I'm liking "Clementine Paints" for a line name and how about "A Goul's Night" for the blue?

(I just put all that into the card I dropped in the mail - but this will get there quicker.) g
