And I have spent a summer day dye-ing:
This wool says alot about me!
I'm from New Zealand, the land with more sheep than people!
I can knit - I couldn't always do so, but a friend taught me last year and there's been no looking back.
At times I can be very spontaneous. Just before lunch I decided to dye this and it was done before the kids had sliced the bread!
I have too many projects on the go at one time! (I should never have started dyeing my stash of cream wool until I'd used up the coloured stuff I have hiding in baskets!)
I have a stash of wool;-)
I am always a bit tentative about trying something new - but my friend (hi Lou!) was right, it *was* dead simple!
I love adventure.
I jump into things eagerly...and sometimes find myself in a tangled mess!
Making bright pockets of sunshine in the daily monotony is important to me.
I like memories.
This wool was going to be called "Sunny Days at the Beach"
then "Sunflowers Against a Summer Sky"
now.....it's too precious for either
L6 brought me a bunch of flowers he'd picked for me and he looked just like the wool.
I wanted to capture that moment of a gift freely given.
Now I want to do something with that wool that will be a reminder.
Not a crocheted photo frame;-)
I thought "memory basket", but I don't know how that would work!
And there's not that much wool, so it'll have to be something small.
What do you think?
I offered to make something for L6, something specially for him.....but what he *wants* is slippers for winter made from green orange and red to look like traffic lights!
