One of the rovings I picked for the new thrums is here. I wanted something variegated and this one sure is. It is called Can Can and it's from Chameleon Fibers on Etsy.
It's redder than it looks in the photo. My phone turns reds into oranges all the time.
I like that I could only buy 2 ounces at a time from this dyer. I don't need a lot for mittens. I've still got one more bag of roving coming before I decide which red I am going to use for the lining so I won't be casting on right now...but getting woolly packages in the mail everyday sure is fun.
And thanks for all your advice on what to do with these batting scraps. Since Superbowl Sunday is right around the corner I'll be putting it all to good use while The Mister is glued to the couch all day watching football. Sigh....it'll be my last Sew Sew Sunday until next season. I can't get anything done when he's on the loose.
I also have to thank Sandflies for sending me a surprise package this week. It is most appreciated-especially the decaf part. The Mister and I are half caffers as a rule. We mix one scoop of regular decaf in with any regular specialty coffee we have which makes it last longer and keeps us from being at each other's throats all day. If I don't get that man his jabs soon I just don't know how much longer he's going to make it....lol.
