I've Got The World On A String

OK, I should have said "yarn", but that wouldn't have been as catchy.

I finished my hat tonight. I am still trying to change the weather and make it warmer in Florida. I've knit wool socks, wool slippers, a shrug and this hat. It is warming up and today we could open the doors and enjoy the fresh air. So maybe it is beginning to work.

You may remember when I dyed yarn in October. I had dyes leftover from dyeing my personal color family. I used it to dye these 3 skeins of yarn. It was quite an involved and lengthy process to use Procion MX dye on wool, but I wanted to use these 3 pure dye colors. I was so happy with the results.

I have started knitting a scarf with the remainder of the yarn I dyed. Certainly by the time I finish it the weather should warm up.
