Happy Birthday to our son Christian!!!
And congratulations to him and his girlfriend Katie as they start another semester at Herzing!!
Next week the two of them will move into their first home and start a whole new gig!! Good Luck! We Love You!!
Here I am at "Oodles". This was the smallest of the 3 shops. I think I had an energy drop while I was here, I had trouble focusing and the owner chattered on non-stop. I'll have to go back again before I can give a proper thumb.
The Looking Glass by far got my vote for Favorite in all of Santa Fe, owned and run by two sisters that seem like an older version of me and Twilight. They were exceptional personalities, and had us laughing and giggling. The store had quite a few rooms of goodies, and I found the perfect souvenirs for us to take home!
I got us matching coffee cups with purple knitted cables around the outside, and they say "Knit One, Sip One" on the inside and along the handle! I love mine!!!
The acid dyes came in powder form that we mixed into little baby food jars and used sponge paint brushes to hand paint our yarn! We covered the tables with plastic wrap first!!
This one is Twilly's beautiful creation! We used the same colors on each of our skeins so we could compare and contrast the results.
And this is that same skein, later.....dried and twisted up!! Omg, what a success!! Everything Twilly touches becomes beautiful!!
After each skein was completely rinsed, we hung them outside on the deck to drip and dry! I full dye day is exhausting, but totally fun and rewarding!!!
