The goal for today is to finish this sweater. It should be quick and easy enough. Just a matter of doing it! I started two new hats and a pair of socks yesterday. It's not like I finished any projects!?!
I dyed some yarn last night. I boiled some avocado skins and stones to make dye. I dyed some sock yarn with the avocado dye. The colour achieved was similar to old lady tights. I added some acid dye to four of the five skeins. I partially dyed them, keeping some of the avocado dyed areas. Maybe using avocados to dye fabric gives a more exciting result.
I am going to attempt this sleeve and watch the series Daniel Deronda on Netflix. I just finished rewatching Downton Abbey. It is such a shame that Netflix only has 3 seasons.
I am hoping to make some more chutney and use up some more apples. I think I will try to make soup as well. I made some chicken stock and really need to use it today!
