It's been a week of finishing on Zosia's tea leaves: all done and blocked as of last night! Now I'm just going to hide it away until I finish Lily's, and give them both on the Autumn equinox as a special present.
Last night I dyed the wool for Lily's sweater. I am new to dyeing, and somehow have been having the problem that even when I dye two skeins in the same dye solution, they end up coming out two slightly different colors. I made sure to mix it up well, so does anyone know why this might be happening or how to prevent it? For now, I am just embracing the slight variation in color!
And in the reading department I have been having a very exciting week of teaching a certain 4 year old to read from this book (and learning the theory behind it). We've completed the first five lessons, and if only I could videotape Zosia begging me for a new sound each day. I think this girl is pretty hungry to learn.
I'm joining in with the Yarn Along again today!
