So, it's been a quick visit. My sister goes home on Friday morning. It's just amazing how a week can just go by so fast.
We dyed yarn today. I haven't had the time to take pictures. I still have to rinse the silk out some more, for some reason the freaking green and red doesn't want to rinse out. I used the same number of packets, but it won't rinse clear. Driving me batty. I might have to cook it again with some vinegar. Either way, we dyed and it was fun. I'm planning on selling the silk once the color sets. It came out really pretty. I did one red/pink, and the other blue/green. I'm also going to soak it in warm water with fabric softener since it really majorly helped last time.
I haven't done much knitting this week. I am supposed to be finishing Meg's Clapotis, but maybe I can get it done tomorrow. I also have to finish my mom's bag. It needs the lining and the flower still has to be felted.
Chad and I got a little break tonight. Meg agreed to watch the little ones who were apparently very cranky while we were gone. We went and used up our gift card to Olive Garden and went bowling. Although I think I'm getting like arthritis in my hand. I keep getting massive pain in my thumb. My MIL thinks I sprained it. Maybe, I have hit it pretty bad a couple times. But it hurts, that's why I haven't been knitting so much. Maybe the hundreds of hours on the computer are catching up to me. My mom got carpal tunnel at one point. But bowling was fun. I suck, but it was still fun. We don't get a break often. I mean we go to the store together, and run errands, but not just go out with no reason.
So I have more errands tomorrow. Meg has an appt to get her hair highlighted because the Spa I go to for my hair is so freakin amazing. She likes to go here when she visits. I also have to take the baby to an appt, and we'll probably go to the mall after.
Ok well it's late, and I've been up for 17 hours, which is way too long for me. Time to sleep!
