Pinky & Peachy!

I've just noticed that most of my recent handdyed wool yarns are in shades of pink. That is because when I clear the table to paint some wool, my little girl always wants to help and the only colours she will agree to use are red/hot pink/yellow. Hence everything ends up pinky & peachy.





Oh well - she starts big girl school tommorrow and so I will be at home with my little boy (who is 2). Maybe he will agree to do some blues? Although he doesn't seem to like painting stuff. He has just started preschool 2 mornings a week and I have yet to be given any drawings/paintings as he spends the entire time playing cars & trains. My daughter used to come home with an armful of creations after preschool. Apparently this is a normal difference between girls and boys?

 

BTW - I'm not flipping my middle finger here, its just the angle of the camera! These are my latest - a mid-length version of arm warmers/sleeves with beaded bracelets (white glass triangular beads). The pink/peach wool (Polwarth & Merino) is handdyed & handspun with green bobbles. They remind me of the buds of spring...

Oh they do remind me of spring. Thank you, she is eagerly awaited. I went looking for signs of snowdrops today, last year they grew blind which should mean a bumper display this year, ut not a peek. Lots of crocus activity.

Does your little girtl felt with you? My daughter loves to give it a go. She usually does more harm than good (being 3) ut she feels so proud of herself for doing it and tells everyone the finished product is all her work.

Thank you!

@Jasmine - seh helps for about 5 seconds and then is off. She finds felting boring and has the attention span of a newt. She can spend ages painting though - so I give her dye & wool instead!

Thanks to you Loani & your helpful editing tutorial!
