Color Preview

Last spring when everyone was coughing and sneezing from hayfever allergies I was smuggly confident that springtime hayfever was the one kind of allergy I did not have. Sure I got a little bit of asthma, but no sniffling, sneezing, runny eyes, runny nose, itchy grossness. Yeah, well you know were smug gets you right? I've been allergerific all day but really hit the snot-jackpot around 10 this evening when, at the dinner table, hives spontaneously started forming and my eyes started to get puffy. I announced I thought I was allergic to something and then immediately rolled my own eyes. How many times a day do I say that? Even I'm sick of hearing it and they're my allergies.

I took the sample garment for my new yet-nameless cotton slub yarn to knitting today and it got great compliments. I am thrilled! I love this yarn. I am dyeing up a few pounds a day of semi-sold colors and should be ready to begin listing them next week or the week after. In the meantime here is a preview of the colors. I didn't take them out of their storage bags for these quick snapshots but I hope you get an idea of the colors:
Orange, being knit in to a sample garment. Lucky Cat stitch marker is a La-di-da stitch markers avaiable at Knitorious and a gift from Deborah.
This red-violet color and a lighter shade of this same color are both on the drying rack now.
Semi-solid black and brown colors
Light turquoise and gold colors
Orange, red and green colors

And in another exciting announcement, today was my last day at Knitorious. I am a 1-job woman for the first time in a long time. I wonder how long I'll keep that up? :)
