Well, the socks and I were trekking around Olds College all this past week. Here's the second sock of the third pair checking out the color wheel dyeing on day two. We were in the dye room from 8:30am till at least 5pm. Dyed for a color wheel, eight gradation shades and injection. Very long day, but hugely productive.
Olds is an agricultural college and the gardens around it are stunning. Unfortunately, it also has huge blood-thirsty mosquitoes. They chase you! Most unpleasant. But I did manage to get a pic of one of the less bitey bugs that fly around there. It was almost like he posed. He sat there long enough for me to dig out my camera and get a pic. Cant tell if he's smiling or not.
This one's for you Kerry!
That's (wait for it) Mr Tabachek!
We got to meet him and buy large sacks of his spinning tools. I think we scared the bejesus out of him. He looked kinda deer-in-head-lightsish when I asked for a photo. And very confused, but he did it amyway. Most likely to get the crazy ladies the hell out of his condo.
And here's the awesome load of goodies my secret pal sent me! Of course the parcel came while I was away and the monkey opened it. But I got paw all the stuff when I got back. It's great! All things I really love. Just check out the vintage needles. How cool is that?! Thanks secret pal!
Ah, it's good to be home. The second pair of trekalong socks is done and ready to get back to the beach. My walking buddy is back from France and we get back to our routine on Monday. She doesn't get up at indecent hours like her hubby. The dog and I can sleep to a reasonable hour again. Yay.
