Funny how things don't always turn out how you expect yet they're still great! :)
I dyed two skeins of Hufflepuff yarn exactly alike. I've started knitting one skein for my pal in the RPM sock pattern and the other skein is
tentatively spoken for SOLD thanks to a nice referral (thanks Susie!). I don't expect to be dyeing more skeins exactly like this because the striping didn't come out exactly as I imagined, but I like it anyway. I do, however, plan to make more Hufflepuff and also some Gryffindor.
This yarn is just incredible. I haven't used a silk blend sock yarn before. If you have then I'm sure you can imagine the feeling of "this is AWESOME!" heh I've always wanted to use some Regia SILK. I had two skeins but then gifted them to someone and never got to try the yarn. I just can't imagine it being better than this. No possible way. NO. POSSIBLE. WAY. I can't imagine how awesome it would be to WEAR these socks. Oh the softness. I'm nearly drooling thinking about it. hehe I know I'm silly. Gotta get more more more of this base yarn - I think I only have a few skeins left.
Update on Katie: The arm has stopped hurting. Thank Heaven. But last night the poor girl woke around 3:15am puking. I suspect a mild case of food poisoning and blame it on the chicken teriyaki she had for lunch at school yesterday. She stayed home this morning but is feeling better now and went to school at 12:30. What a good girl. I think I would have stayed home if that happened to me in 8th grade. Probably because I didn't like Mr. Honzowitz. Ugh.
