Random Awesome

I've been busy of late, which often prevents me from posting on here, but usually doesn't prevent me from knitting. Because if knitting is good for anything, it's to procrastinate another project or responsibility. I'm even doing it right now!

The story behind this dog sweater is that his owners, my former professors, and their son named him Jean-Luc Piccard Colbert (lol, I can't make this up). So... I could not resist.

Jean-Luc and his owners were very pleased with the results :D.

This morning my friend and I had a "dying party" in which we dyed a bunch of yarn. I had made a yarn order that I had planned to use today, but it hasn't come in yet. Next post though (!) I will be dying. :}

This was a little mini skien to practice on. We wanted to see the effects of kool-aid and some of the dye that she had. I used Blue Raspberry Lemonade Kool-Aid, Peacock dye, and Jade Green dye. The Kool-Aid ended up really light blue, but I liked that variation. I thought the Peacock would be more purple, but it was dark teal, and the green was green. I let it dry for a few minutes then wound it and made the most adorable mini yarn ball ever.

I think I'm going to make a mini octopus out of it. I think a friend of mine needs a mini octopus :D. WHO DOESN'T?

And here's an update of where my zombie octopus of December of last year ended up. I knit the little hat too. :} I love strange little things.
