Manic Monday . . . and Tuesday . . .

I must be in some kind of manic state, because I've been cranking out the knitting and cookies like crazy. Okay, here are the first and second pairs of clogs - the first pair look all wonky because I am washing them and not shaping them, just trying to get them smaller in my front loading machine. Still not there. The Philosopher's wool is thick, and doesn't felt well.

Obviously the second pair hasn't been felted yet.
Now, moving on, here's a purse, sans handles, that has been through two wash cycles, and still has a way to go. Felt, damn you!

This brings us to a lone clog, unfelted, but knit from wool dyed with Kool-Aid. Orange Kool-Aid. I had only dyed one skein, and it's all I had with me yesterday as I was waiting for Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul to do their show. By the way, if you haven't seen her, she's a must. Her Christmas CD is fantastic, but I can't seem to find it for sale anywhere, except at their concerts. Maybe after the tour is done, they'll sell them online.

Still more! Anyone still reading this? Here we see 3 skeins of wool, dyed once again with Kool-Aid. In no particular order we have Strawberry, Cherry and Fruit Punch. I do love these! Also a small ball of novelty yarn to mix in for the cuff.

Okay, blogger has decided that I have used my allotment of picture downloading, so I'll continue this fascinating story tomorrow.
