Verbena

That's what I have decided to call the yarn I dyed yesterday. And here's why...


Doesn't it look right at home nestled in the verbena? My other favorite color of verbena is the same as the blue in the yarn. I couldn't wait and cast on last night for a pair of jaywalkers and only got the ribbing done. I should have a progess pic tomorrow with some of the pattern rows. Even though the colors didn't come out as I had envisioned I'm still very happy with this experiment. The Wilton/microwave method is fast enough to satisfy that urge to dye but your pressed for time and just want to get it done.

On other topics. I ditched haloscan commenting. NO comments were getting through. They would show up on the comment management page on haloscans website but then would never show up on the blog. I checked all my settings and the code for my template and everthing looked just as it should. So, for now I'm back to trusty ol' blogger commenting.

Just the right name for the yarn's colorway.
