Hand dyed sock yarn

I miss dyeing yarn. There's something to be said for playing with color, and seeing how things turn out.   So here's a few of my experiments:

Autumn.  I like the mixture of autumnal colors, with the bit of slate blue.  I haven't had a chance to knit anything up with this one, but should be pretty.

First Light.  Bright turquoise really stands out against the lavender, steel blue and chestnut.

Peppermint. Mostly red, with patches of creamy natural white.

Seascape. Pretty oceanic colorway.

Christmas baking is on

I made these pumpkin spice cookies with a light orange icing today. I didn't make enough icing though. They're pretty good, even if they do look like they were decorated by the 2 year old. (They weren't. That's all me, baby.)

Craft fair aftermath

Today is for cleaning up and reorganizing after the craft fair this weekend. Then I need to work on finishing my Christmas presents.
