i way overdid it yesterday, i spun a few hundred yards yesterday after dyeing for 3 or 4 hours. my mom wanted me to go shopping with her and my cousin who is in town from canada, but i wanted to get some of this stuff done, at long last. it was easier than i thought, mainly because i had researched it and knew basically what i was doing. makes a big difference. you know? i think i wore off my fingerprints on my index fingers from spinning. also, i didn't wear gloves to dye and i used my hands to disperse the color. hmf! i may try the microwave method next time, it will be quicker. i want to stay home and dye more! now i will be afraid to knit up frida because it is so beautiful. this is my problem. i am overwhelmed by the beauty and don't want to waste it.
god, am i tired.
yesterday i met my mom, dad and 2nd cousin for dinner. my cousin is really cool. she is my mom's age, but is so open minded. she was the black sheep of the family, so actually had done so much in her life, travelling, living in all sorts of different places, she worked with steven spielberg interviewing holocaust survivors. she is a history teacher in toronto. anyway, if i have the energy, i would like to hang out with her alone. my mom tends to cut her off, or cut me off, so we can't really talk about anything.
i am soooooooo tired. tired! tired. but i must get up. must get up.
