I finished Shedir in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
I had noticed during the knitting that some of the dye was rubbing off on my fingers, so I gave it a good long soak and rinse to get the excess dye washed out (there wasn't a whole lot, in the end) and it is now dry and ready to be given to Daphne. I shall hopefully be seeing her on Friday.
In other news, I received a package yesterday from Rabbitch. Turns out we both work similarly crazy hours, so we've been chatting a good bit of late and I decided to buy a skein of her sock yarn in the "No Mean Feets" colorway.
Yes, it's a much tamer name than "Koala Twat" or "Electric Sheep Douche", and no, she has not indicated to me that it has a different, more perverse, known-only-to-her name. But she still would like me to reassure everyone that she is nothing but an unrepentant trollop, and I shant dispute that.
I decided that this yarn would go well in one of Charlene Schurch's two-color sock patterns with one of the skeins I have from Carol's Black Bunny Fibers. The perfectness of pairing Rabbitworks with Black Bunny yarn is not lost on me.
But first they're going to have to hang out together for a good while so that I can work on wedding knitting. It remains to be seen which will corrupt the other more. It's just a good thing that Dolores's tour won't be bringing her through this neck of the woods.
