good measure


So, I got a little tired of the Dip Dye Method.

Behold, more Cold Pour.

Attempt #1
Teal – Fuchsia – Brown Cocoa

I mucked the colour joins a bit in this one….hence the purple bits.

It totally reminds me of that taffy candy I use to get as a kid.

The question remains: What shall I make with you?

Attempt #2
Scarlet – Fuchsia – Tangerine

The colour joins mattered not at all in this one.
Bleed away.

It’s like Sherbet on Crack.

In my opinion, all good colourways should remind one of food.


About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets,, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  1. Oh my – I’ve been missing out – what should you make with these amazing yarns? Nothing – you should sell them to Pick Up Sticks so I can be known as the shop who found the next great Indie Dyer. Seriously, we need to talk girl – time to order lots more yarn for you! I especially love the dip and dyes!

  2. I agree with Connie.

    Mmmmmmm, yarn!

    Attempt #2 looks like the seasilk I’m using for my Lily shawl. Same colors.


  3. Connie: We’ll talk Wednesday.

    Susan: I love your Lily Shawl. Pink and orange should go together ALWAYS.

    Renee: Yarn and food. What more does a girl need?
