This blog is mostly going to be my little place to talk about the novel I am writing. Which is why I stole a quote from one of my favorite tv shows, as this novel I am writing, I plan to finish, and at times.. it feels like an impossible thing. Also this is to journal my move to the UK, and starting my own business as an Indie Yarn Dyer

Really cool peeps.

I did it.
I just sent the email to order my first set of Dyes.
only 4 colors, which is perfect for the starting point I need.

This morning while I was brushing my teeth I decided on another colorway I want to add to my eventual list.

But mostly I started this post to talk about the amazing people.

Reni, a friend on Ravelry sent me a little something something. It wasn’t anything special in her words, but when she saw it, she thought of me.
Now, she has no idea just what she did.
It was a bookmark of The Wicked Witch of the West and it was green and sparkly and awesome (there shall be photos soon.. ) and it says .. ack I’m not awake enough to remember it word for word. But it basically says “You say Wicked like it’s a bad thing”
Now, this basic sentence is what got me my nickname of Wicked all those years ago.
I was having a discussion with my friend Katie (Katie not Katte), and she looked up at me after I said that I didn’t think Wicked was a negative word, and she said “Thats your name” and without missing a beat I said “your right.” then we continued the rest of the discussion.
So it was just a little thing that Reni did, but it had a big impact as she didn’t know anything about that little story. She knew I had a nickname of Wicked (as my ravelry ID is BewitchedWicked) but she had no idea where it came from.

Now also a buddy on Ravelry.. Spud’s bud to be exact, sent me a package of herbs from his garden. that was freaking awesome.
Last night we had NY Strip Steaks (hey, they were on sale) with fresh Thyme on it. YUM.
Tonight, shall be salmon cakes with some of the fresh Dill.

I have also found, what shall be my UKBFF. Yes, i did in fact utter the word BFF. But, Jo (another Ravelry person) and I have been just chattin’ up a storm, and have discovered that we pretty much love all the same things. Her passions? Knitting and Reading. Hmmm… considering my life goals… I’m alright with these hobbies lol. She and I plan on wearing Dead Fish hats (alright, her’s is technically not a Dead Fish.. and mine won’t be a dead fish, but instead a Blow Fish…) to the Tower of London. We also have Nights of Drunken Dyeing planned. Followed by Days of Sober Dyeing… tee hee.. methinks the drunken nights will instead just end up being Movie Appreciation nights.
Jo is one awesome lady. She’s helping me out so much with my whole Dyeing plan.. I honestly… wouldn’t have as much confidence if it weren’t for her. She has done some dyeing. She also is an avid knitter. And most importantly, she’ll tell me what looks good and what doesn’t. This is important. For the past week now I’ve been bouncing ideas off of her. She has also graciously allowed me to someday steal a colorway that she created. It’s freaking awesome, and of course she shall always get credit for it both in acclaim, and monetary format. It’s only right. Also according to her, I think outside the yarn box. Which is a good thing, as most dyers find one thing, and stick to it.

I’m babbling because I’m not awake.

Seriously, I need to stop dreaming about yarn. lol.

Alright. I guess back to work for me.
