Cardiff Cowl

It's finished because I ran out of yarn on row 8/10 (or rather, 18 of 20) but I don't think it notices... Maybe?

I gave it a wash to see if dye was leaching out- pictures speak for themselves. I wanted to give it a fourth wash through but it looked like it was starting to felt/full itself so I had to stop.

Anyway, judge me as you see fit- including the world's worst pic of me for some time/aka/the best pic of me eyebags and spottiness (karma bites me in the arse again, damn relatively spot free teen tears) known to man!


Does this ^ look felty to you? Should I shave it? ;)

Crochet, popcorn and backache!

No, I haven't fallen off the edge of the planet, I'm just working too much to blog often!

Also I had suspected swine pig disease a couple weeks back; complete with hallucinations, which really put me on my arse. Ugh.

Anyway, I started the Cardiff Cowl (free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn) yesterday in what I believe to be Fyberspates hand dyed.

Good news? I'm halfway done. Yay.

Bad news? The dang yarn is leaving orange residue on my hands! Ew! Whut?

I think a rinse before wearing is in order. Grumble. If the yarn wasn't a gift, I'd be really peeved!

Anyway, lookylook:

Urghness! But it rubs off pink?! Er, whut? (nails DYED by it!)

I've sent all my gifts off to the USA & Canadia so I'm not worrying much, except about if they get there!

Hope, Gina, Leslie, Marf, Debxox, Heather (cc)- watch out!

Englanders, yours is coming soon...

Hokays, who wants a cowl in a non-staining wool?
