Well one week is done at the Tolmie household. Apart from Joel getting sick things went okay. I came home for the weekend and managed to dye these skeins of wool a lovely green the first attempt was too light so did the same over-dyed and came out pretty much how I wanted. Trying to dye 3 + 200 grams the same shade provided a challenge and it means I have to go looking for a bigger dyepot! Lovely weather for dyeing got to 19 deg! Today back to rain and colder. The colour is somewhere between the two photo's. I also started a Beyond Peurperium in my handdyed merino and it is BRIGHT!!!! quite like the way it is pooling. Well Josh if you are reading this on your laptop in Auckland hopw you have had a great weekend and have another good week, keep up the good work!!

Well Josh and Lindsey are off to the Wilson Home in Auckland today for 3 weeks of therapy. The other 2 will be staying behind this time and I will be staying to lend a hand, Dan will still be at home. They will all go up in the middle for a few days so that will be something nice to look forward to. I have also been knitting a few things a Pebble Vest Benji Hat and many others. It was a shame I couldnt get to the Richmond Market the other week as it was blowing a gale, its a shame its only once a month! Josh also requested some socks for Auckland and only told me Thurs night (no pressure aye Josh?) He provided the VP sock yarn which he is a fan of. Turned out lovely here on my Ravelry page Well better go and pack things and relish the quiet while I can ha ha!!.
