So, I started the day with 15 minutes on the elliptical. Than, breakfast and some experiment dyeing yarn. See, last week at knit-night, we talked about dyeing yarn and using food coloring or natural sources (i.e. plants). Yesterday, as I was eating a blood orange, I was admiring the color nd thinking that it would be great if I could reproduce it on the yarn. I need to learn more about using plants or fruit to dye fiber, because my attempt was pretty much a flop. My piece of yarn, which started white is now very pale pink. I won't give up. More experiments to come.
After my experiment with yarn and an orange, I took the recycling out. All of it.
Then, I when to the store to get milk so I could bake some cookies.
The day is not over. I still have to take a shower, and do some groceries after dinner.
For those of you that don't knit, knit-night might be a funny expression. Here in the Ottawa/Gatineau/Hull region, there is a big knitting community, and there are groups of us meeting on a regular basis at different venues around the city. And Friday night, we meet in the west end. I love those girls, they are my best friends and I love going to knit-night. I'll probably be mentionning it often in the future since it's a big part of my week.
