There’s been quite a few things happening around Chez Pants, but I was waiting for the debut of the brand new blog (well, ish) before I strated blogging about it all, so this is going to be an uber long post. You might want to grab a beverage before we get started. I’ll wait.
Are you back with fortifications? Excellent.
First, I’m going to have do that soccer parent thing and show you pictures from the first game of the season. It’s a milestone year for us because they’re actually keeping score this year and they really smart uniforms with endorsements on them. Or advertising. Same difference, right? Anyway, here are pictures from the first game:
There’s also been quite a lot of dying and spinning going on as well. The Boy and I died up some yarn (His is the blue colorway) that I had spun way back in the beginning days.
[SIDENOTE] So I just went to go pick up the Boy from car pool and I convinced him (rather easily, truth be told) that he should model some roving and yarn for me.
Him: When you put the picture of my yarn, will put my name under it and underline my name?
Me: I don’t use your name on my blog.
Him: Then what do you call me?
Me: The Boy.
Him: I don’t like that name.
Me: You don’t?
Him: No. I want to be the BAD Boy.
Me: (laughing) OK.
Him: Will you put this on your blog? And tell them I want to be the BAD Boy?
So there you have it. [/END SIDENOTE]
He modeled the roving for me, but then it got hot so he went inside.
This is some 100% wool I dyed up. These colors seem to be my calling card, because I am always drawn to them in yarn and roving. And also when I dye. That’s just under 6 ounces of roving being modeled by the BAD Boy.
Here’s what became of the roving that Emily sent me:
And this is the yarn that the BAD Boy and I dyed. His is the blue colorway.
And I think we’ll stop at that. I’ve got yarn that I bought on sale to show you, but we’ll save that for another day.
