2 things

So, there was a day when I wanted to color my hair. I bought a box of color at Meijer. It must have been old. It turned my hair many colors and in some areas no colors at all. When I walked into the shop that day all Chelsea said was "no".

So she called her room mate who is a hairdresser. She fixed it and I love it. I posted this for Amy cause she wanted to see:-)
Also, Amy sent me 3 pounds of Corriepaca in 3 different colors. I am going to make a sweater using all three colors. Of course I chose to spin the pink first.

I spun this yarn on the 3o inch Schacht Reeves. The bobbins on that wheel are surprisingly large. I plyed it into a 3 ply on the Louet S10. It took 2 S10 bobbins to fit the whole pound.

I like this yarn a lot. There are approximately 764 yards of the finished yarn at 14 wraps per inch. I knit a swatch using a size 2 and size 4 needle. I prefer the fabric on the size 4 needle. It is 22 stitches to 4 inches.

I need to get to work on the rest right away!

You realize it's because you bought that box with Denny there, right? She made it happen.

Seriously, the new hair looks great.

SO envious of the hair! I've wanted to do that for years but people keep talking me down. Finally ignored them all and went to the salon to get it dyed and the hairdresser didn't want to do it. GAH! I'm surrounded by boring, conventional... boring people!

Thanks for the photo. I love the color. it's very sexy hot.

The swatch is lovely. I can't wait to see what you do with it.mia

I am happy for you that you have a friend with a good hairdresser... my rule of thumb is don't do color at home (unless one is drumcarding). It looks great and I'm glad you love it!
