Spots. Shades and Mittens

Well, not only have I been dyEing ... I have completed my self imposed Mitten Marathon!!

First, the dyEing!
The Knotty Sheep has begun a new series of dyEing called "A Study of Spots & Shades!" I have been having fun playing in the dYe pots ... WhEEEEEEE!!!! The first color to be released ... TEAL! I think that this is such a wonderful color!!

Second, the Mitten Marathon! I was able to complete 3 pair of mittens for the Cheyenne River Sioux. It would have been 4 pair, but the stripey ones were frogged when I realized that I didn't have enough of the same yarn to 'stripe'. Down to the thumbs they were 'ripped' - sigh! I am quite partial to their cheeriness - they do make me smile!

I think I will start another pair tonight. I am still using up stash like a Wild Woman! Stash-using is a good thing ... I am kind of psyched that I have just a wee bit more room in the studio than I did a few weeks ago!
