With a lot of work, that's how! Goodman and I have been gardening more this year than in the last few years. I do love my garden, but I say again, it's a lot of work! And hungry bugs are everywhere just waiting till you turn your back so they can chomp the young, tender plants. Oh, and if you're not used to it the bending, stooping, tugging, hoeing and watering makes muscles and joints scream for extra rest at night. We've been hitting the hay pretty early lately. All that to say that I'm sorry I've missed some of your blog posts. This is my wild red rose on the old walk-through gate post.I wanted to try crocheting another worsted weight doily to look like a daisy, but I couldn't find any green yarn without going out of my way to find some. Dying yarn is not my forte. I was forced into it. Then after all that..I found a ball of sage green hiding in a basket so I used all three shades for the doilies in the next picture.
Here's the results of the yarn dyin' and the daisy thought.
I'm not finished writing the pattern, yet. I hope to do that soon...maybe it will rain...I sure hope so. I figured out the border for the crochet shawl, but it's too much to work on at the moment. Here's to a wonderful week, Y'all!
I love the colors! I think they look great!ReplyDelete
Yarn dyeing is a wonderful addiction; your daisies are lovely. And so is your rose bush!ReplyDelete
Your wild red rose is beautiful. I've recently planted a few roses in my garden. I'm looking forward to having a few bouquets on my table this summer.ReplyDelete

The dolies are beautiful! The colors you came up with are just perfect. One of my girlfriends gave me a whole case of worsted weight un dyed yarn. I am planning on trying my hand at coolaide coloring.ReplyDelete
