Sometimes, happy yarn is called for.
On Saturday I went up to The Sheep Shop to pick up an extra ball of some lovely angora (pic tomorrow), and they had some DK/Aran weight undyed sock yarn at a really good price. And I felt like dyeing it like a rainbow; so I did.
My boiler is not the happiest of things at the moment, so it's taken a couple of days to dry; but it's a lovely thing, I think... It'll be socks, for a friend who's going through hard times at the moment. And I'll love knitting it in the cold grey mornings and the dark evenings, so with any luck it'll cheer both of us up.
