It's so hard letting you go. . . .

Well, I knew it would happen eventually--I would dye some yarn that I just can't let go of. It's so pretty. It was a random experiment with yarn and dye in my kitchen last week. I didn't think I would love it so. But I do. I keep telling myself to put it on my site, I could probably sell it. But I can't make myself do it. Not yet. I'm not ready.
Hopefully a few days away from it while on vacation will help me forget about how much I love it. Then, when I come back, I can try to sell it. Maybe it will just be that easy.

So, yeah, I am so going on vacation! My parents are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary! The whole family is going to Wisconsin Dells, which is where we would vacation when we were kids. I think it will be a very good time. Here are some pictures of my parents:

Here they are on their wedding day (June 18, 1977):

Here they are at some other random time, obviously in the 70s (I am basing this off my dad's shirt, of course):
Man, it is crazy how much my brother, Matt, looks like my dad in that picture. Strange.

And here they are with my brother, Mike, at his college graduation last summer:

My parents. They rock!

Happy knitting. :)


  1. Have a great time with your family at the Dells! And don't feel bad about keeping the yarn. You can always dye more!

  3. That's a gorgeous color of yarn, no wonder it's hard for you to let go. (We'll all look the other way if you decide to keep it!)

    Congrats to your parents for 30 years together! That's wonderful to hear.

  4. I love your yarn. it makes me want to knit.
    oh, and i miss you.



  5. Congratulations to your parents! Have a great time in Wisconsin!

    Your brother really does look like your Dad. Maybe you should suggest he grow the mustache?!
