Not unwind, but definitely rewind…
No, it was not a day to unwind. It seemed like all I did was wind up, wind down, rewind. In between all this I always wind up with some good noise on in the background. The noise du jour was “The Way” with Charlie Sheen. As I wound the yarn up to dye, I kept thinking about all the Peregrino’s I have met along this life’s journey. Yes, there are two pilgrimages I would like to make: Ireland (Ancient Irish trails) and El Camino de Santiago. I would go to the sea. When asked why I made the journey my response would be, “To see some old friends.”
Along yesterdays journey I finally found Doreen’s color. We have Brigitte, Valerie, Wendy. Even the Esperanza and that French girl have their own colors. Let’s not forget Grisette!
Doreen is an antique rose. Danish Mermaid was feeling much lighter yesterday so I didn’t push her further. Easter Chimes was and is always an experiment in what happens if I put Color C over Color A & B. The Róisín Dubh has been on my mind since I worked in Boston. She was right around the corner from the advertising agency where I worked. The Lovers…no matter how many times I tried to make that skein look refined, the strands would get all tousled and kinky. So let’s just say The Lovers are very happy as they are 🙂
P.S. It was fun just sitting outside under the stars letting the lightning bugs entertain me. Every time I put the camera up to capture the little bugs, the lights would go out. So I will just enjoy the sparkling entertainment sans modern technology.
P.S.S. The Dogleg Coffeehouse makes a one brilliant caramel
