Proof (if any was needed) that The Holidome Is No Canyon Ranch
November 23, 2009
We’re on teevee!
Here we are, goofing off while being interviewed at Rhinebeck by the unfailingly gracious CAT of Let’s Knit 2gether. Not for nothing, but could either of us get any pastier? Was it just the overcast skies? I mean, no offense, but geez. You can almost smell the Holidome chlorine wafting off the screen. I am just saying. Next year: pack blow dryer.
Everything I have been knitting is either unexciting (see Ladies Panties Scarf, named for its beigey-pink hue reminiscent of Maidenform pantie girdles circa 1965), or likely to expose me to public ridicule (perhaps another dog sweater). By the way, the Ladies Panties Scarf is now ready to lose its humiliating name via a soak in the dye pot. Does anybody know of a good beginner’s dyeing kit, preferably plant-based, to recommend to me? I’m looking to turn this scarf from Flesh Tone (But Not in a Good Way) to a rich, reddish brown, or walnut, or something along those lines. It’s a Christmas present, but no pressure! I will dutifully document these items as soon as I am able, so that all may mock and enjoy.
