Backwards is Better
It's shaping up to be a doozy of a week, so I'll just talk about the past weekend:
A trip to the Heath Ceramics Factory in Sausalito. Beautiful, beautiful stuff. First two wedding* gifts down.
Lunch by the marina at Fish. Chowder. Yum.
Eerie, foggy stroll in the Marin headlands:
Dyeing yarn. Almost 900 yards of yarn, in fact. Knitpicks worsted superwash to be knit into a clapotis for Mr. Beagle's grandma at Christmas. I was trying for this. I ended up with this:
And that's in yellowing artificial light. In better light it's a little My Little Pony for my taste. Coming soon: adventures in overdyeing. (Did I mention- 900 yards? Son of a nutcracker!)
*We have six (SIX!) weddings of close friends or relatives coming up in the next year.
