However, I made a new friend, Diane of Sweet Knitted Bottoms. We did a collaboration a few weeks ago, she knitted a skirtie to match one of my diapers. It turned out so unbelievably cute. She is amazing. I would highly recommend you get yourself on her customs list if you can.
I was drooling at her gallery and asked her if I sent her some superwash worsted, could she dye it up for me? I want to make a hooded tunic for my almost 12-year-old. She agreed to do it and HERE IT IS!!! The pictures do not do it justice. I have had a crash day, you know, the kind where you don't want to go anywhere or do anything, but now I am inspired to load the kids in the car and go to the yarn store so I can get the pattern I need.
I'm going to beg her to dye some more for sweaters for my other kids too. I am so excited! I have found a way to indulge in my love of hand-dyed yarn but make it tough and superwash for my busy kids! I can't wait to get started!
