This yarn is several shades of grey and pink. The colorway is "Suzanne" named after my friend who suggested this would be a good color combination to try to dye.
I have had quite a few purchases of worsted weight yarn recently, so need to get dyeing some more. My dyeing day on Sunday didn't work out because my brother called to see if I wanted to visit my mother, who lives in a nursing home after falling and breaking her hip several years ago. It is a very difficult thing to visit her because every time I go it seems that she has failed more. After the visit I no longer felt creatively inspired to dye, so instead spent the day knitting and watching a marathon of America's Next Top Model-a good way to vegetate, yet create something at the same time.
It was knitting night at the library tonight. It was only Trina and me-a very quiet night. Trina gave me a pair of Kollage Yarns square metal double pointed needles she had ordered for me. I wanted to try them even though I am not a fan of metal needles. I was surprised at how much I like them. The metal seems to have a plastic coating so the yarn slides along very easily and they are much lighter than regular metal needles. I think I will get another pair. I knit a lot of socks with size 0 needles, and the wooden ones tend to bend. The bamboo set I am using now are permanently bent in what looks like a smile.
Here is today's cat picture. I had my two phat fiber sampler boxes on the couch and Gerard must have thought one would be a good place for a nap. This box had a lot of natural fiber in it, and I think he liked the natural animal scents. He stayed in there and slept for quite a while.
