This week I have been getting my yarn ready for Zosia's fall sweater. I now have three skeins of grapefruity pink yarn ready for knitting save for a bit of leftover dampness (I think I will make her a tiny tea leaves, which looks just adorable!). I used some instructions I found for dying yarn with food coloring (just a little different than the other instructions I used a few months ago), and it worked well. I must admit, I am still quite a novice and have a hard time controlling the end results, but that is sort of the beauty of the whole yarn dying process-- the unexpected results!
And in the reading department, I am between books, so above is Ben's current reading selection: The Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway.
Don't you love that little icon in the back? A friend brought it back to me from the Holy Land, and I absolutely *love* the way Mary is sort of releasing Jesus into the world. I must admit, I can relate to the feeling of having to release a little one into the world, and I can attest to the fact it is not nearly as easy as this Mary makes it look!
Be sure to check out the rest of the yarn along!
