So I bought some Strawberries and Blackberries yesterday while shopping for groceries. Now usually, any fruit I buy goes bad for lack of quick usefulness. So today, I washed chopped and sugared my berries. I also pulled out some frozen cherries to thaw, cut, de-pit, and sugar, I'm very excited. I am also listening to CraftLit while cleaning the house. Now I will have to get some tart/short cake recipes to whipp up soon. I can't wait for my parents to get 'back on the grid' with some internet. They have moved into their apartment in Poland and I have missed them these last couple of days as they as yet, do not have any internet.

I Was reading a blog recently (Knit Quest I think) and she made a comment on dying yarn and to take a grouping of favorite pictures to find your personal color palate. I then saw in another blog (no idea this time) a beautiful picture of a cherry blossom tree in full bloom. I have NEVER been one to like the color pink, I always associated it to the girls who were too prissy to be my friends. But I have always enjoyed the pairing of a lite, almost white pink with a dark-chocolate brown. And so the urge to dye a skein of yarn pink and brown was strong, too bad I have no experience with dyeing nor the tools or even the yarn to dye. But the urge is still there, so when I have the time space and equipment to produce the nirvana of all yarn colors, I shall embark on the journey that will undoubtedly take me deep into the belly of the dyeing world.
