Monday...crochet and washing and all that

Monday, first day of the week.  With extra joy for the sunny weather and knowing that tomorrow, my mama will be here for a visit.  Look at this little flower, thrusting up from a little crack in the pavement, determined to enjoy life
and this young thing, dashing about on his bike
and a little lady taking a stroll in the sunshine
anyway, now matters either more interesting or more trivial, depending on one's perspective...

I am crocheting a THING
have you ever made a THING?  Something for which you may or may not have an idea of its intended finished state?  Something which you hope will serve a certain purpose but are unwilling to admit it until you know for sure it comes off?  I have made many THINGS, some more successful than  others.  This thing will have to wait to be finished and felted until its fate is known.

Also, the yarn I dyed with onion skins finally finished drying today, thanks to the sunshine
And, just to make full use of that glorious warming force, I got round to some handwashing

Nothing  I can do will ever stop the feet of those tights being such a filthy colour...well possibly cleaning my floors more often may have helped


  1. Oh, THINGS. Sometimes the sense of mystery is fun, sometimes its terrifying and frustrating. I hope your THING comes out right,

    The onion skins gave a gorgeous color. What mordant did you use? When I tried onions I ended up with a rather anemic color payoff but I would like to try again because when it comes out, it's so pretty.

  2. Ha! Love it! Any attempt at crochet has so far produced a THING!

    What will come of the onion-dyed yarn??? Can't wait to see!

  3. I've seen this onion skin malarkey about with mixed success but yours I like very much! Not sure I've ever made a thing. I've made 'swatches' with no project in mind but never a thing.
