After that, Mom and I kept to our planned day. I made it to the post office with a Christmas Swap box and I got to go to a special lady's house and learn alot about dying. I want you to meet Mrs. Stacy Little of Tempted Yarns. For those of you who are new to Mrs. Little's work, you can check her out at www.temptedyarns.com or at any one of the stores that carry her line. You can find her stuff in the following Brick and Mortar stores:
* The Yarn Company in NY City
* Fibre Space in Alexandria, VA
* Sealed with a Kiss (SWAK) in Guthrie, OK
* Stringtown Yarns and Fiber in Ft. Smith, AR
* One City Market in Rogersville, MO
* Ball and Skein in Germantown, OH
* ReBelle in Lexington, KY
There is even a knitting shawl pattern named after her ... It is called the Stacy Shawl
Anyway, Mom acted her totally goofy self today and tried to steal this lady's socks. Stacy and Mom laughed about it and Mom has no idea why she likes them so much. Stacy offered to teach Mom to knit socks if she wanted but Mom said it was just the color that got her. Stacy Dyed this yarn herself. Isn't it amazing what she can do with color?
Would you believe I actually dyed a skein of yarn??? And the Best part is that - Thanks to a donation from Tempted Yarns and Mrs. Stacy Little - It is now to be given away in honor of Angel's bloodwork coming back clean and her getting a second chance at life. I wanted to do something off the wall. Something that had nothing to do with anything that had happened in the last two days. Something that was so not me. You know, I wanted a clean start for everything. So Here are the details: This skein of yarn is 400 yds/100grams of 100% superwash Merino called Good Grrl. It is so soft and light and it is available on Stacy's web site but this one is the first and only one I myself Dyed and I named the color. The name of it is Pink Angel.
