I want to start out by saying I hate to complain… about anything. And living in Arizona one should NEVER complain about rain. We need rain any time, any way we can get it. But it was raining when I woke up yesterday and it’s still raining this morning. Oh well. And to make matters worse (yes, I’m still complaining), I pulled a muscle in my lower back yesterday morning when I reached down to get something off the floor. I was just sitting there, reached down and OOOOOHHHHH!!!! I spent the ENTIRE DAY with ice packs, heating pad and Aleve. I was able to get some sleep last night, but still feeling puny today. There. That’s enough of that.
Now for progress on my Navajo rug (that I wasn’t able to work on yesterday and probably not today.)
I’m about a third way done, and I’m liking it! I wasn’t sure about the light brown variegated yarn but I think it works. The yarn was my first trial dyeing with my hand spun yarn. It is a pecan hull dye and I didn’t know to weight the yarn down in the dye pot. So the parts that floated on the top are lighter than the rest. The colors aren’t true in the photo. The green isn’t that grey and the two corner designs are more maroon. All the yarn is my hand spun, and I see where I need to spin all the yarn for the project at the same size. Always learning what works and what can be improved.
The always favorite dishcloth, and I add a bar of Desert Oasis soap.
Well, that’s it.
