How did I not know this board was here?!

I can't wait for school to be over (this is the last week.. ever!), because then I can devote my time to all things crafty, which includes having a day long dye fest.  I'm even going to teach the boyfriend how to dye AND how to knit.  Cheesy

here's some handspun wool/mohair I dyed sometime within the last month.  (I bought the handspun from etsy; didn't spin it myself)

I used Jacquard acid dye in Gold Ochre, stovetop method.  I love the lighter yellow bits that are mixed in there.  I've knitted an earflap hat with it, which I hope to finish in the next week.  (I only have to crochet the edging and that takes me forever to do)

I also dip dyed some SWTC Optimum, using Jacquard acid dye in Pink.  I don't know how crazy I am about how it came out.  Sure it looks nice in the hank and balled up, but knitted?  :\  Maybe I'll find a good use for it.

thanks.  I couldn't get that title out of my head when I was knitting with the gold yarn.  It's the title of a compilation cd put together by Devendra Banhart.  And according to wikipedia, he got that title from a Ray Bradbury short story.

Hopefully I'll soon post FO photos of the hat in the knitting board when I finish the edging.
