My experience dyeing cotton and linen clearing left a lot to be desired. I ended up placing the entire washcloth in the dyebath. After a wash, most of the dye rushed down the drain. Still, I am pleased with the seagrass green that was the result.
Yesterday I went to Wild Oats and gathered a few treats for my friend. An bar of Eucalyptus soap, gourmet chocolate drops, trail mixes and homeopathic calming mints.
I'm very pleased with the yarn. It knit up easily. I washed it with regular laundry and dried it on the cotton setting. The feeling is soft with the cotton but with a little roughness with the linen. It feels substantial.
Our little vacation was the best time off we had in a long time. No work in any form - no visiting any factories as part of the trip and no "work" knitting that needs to be finished before we return home. We slept in every morning and then wandered leisurely through the day. We played golf, I cleaned my closet and organized my projects that have been sitting neglected for two years, we watched movies and, of course, I knit for hours on whatever I wanted.
Now, it's back to work all rested.
