Happy Saturdye!

Well, the weekend has ended and I’m back to being the responsible blue shirt and brown pants wearing Jeff that I shed in light of the freedom that Saturday and Sunday give me. It’s been a while since I’ve had some weekend time to pursue some projects I’m really interested in- and I was ready.

 So started the first ever Saturdye for me. KnitPicks.. check. Kool aid I started collecting months ago check. Casserole dish purchased. Plastic cups check. Microwave not stolen? Check. And combine everything, you get… thewholesetup.JPG

I didn’t think I was going to be so persnickety (read “anal retentive”) about setting up everything but my scientific mind kicked in as well as my color theory mind.. warmtocool.JPG

where I tried lining things up in a color wheel as well as warm to cool as you see above.

 The whole process with all the mini-skeins I did took about 4 hours. You can see the rest of the results in my Flickr account (just click on one of the photos above and it should take you there luckily.)

 Once the yarn was up to dry and all my work had been done, I took myself to my favorite movie theatre in the world, Coolidge Corner Theater, and saw Russian Dolls which I walked out of feeling surprisingly French and both satisfied and disappointed in the world at the same time. It made me want to be home and working on my knitting actually- to find completion through my projects.

 It’s a discombobulated first entry into the blogging world I’ll admit- I’m going to start looking for a good blog client to run on my computer at home to make this whole process work better for me. Right now, I’m shaky.

 Welcome Jeff to the world of blogging.

    Hey there. Congratulations on your recent foray into the blogging world. I had no idea you were getting into dyeing. Congratulations! Great Job! I love the colors.

    You shaved your head? (sorry, didn’t indicate a tangent had taken place.) I’ve always wanted to shave my head! But I wonder what it will look like with this big squash on top of my shoulders!

    Can’t wait to see what you end up knitting with these skeins.
