Also, for your delectation, we offer some shetland roving and mystery sock yarn that I dyed with <a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/flapjackanarchist/knitting/lavenderpickypantsandbrazilwood005_.jpg" target="_blank">brazilwood</a>. Apparently, brazilwood dyes things an orangey purple. The only conclusion I can come to is that my yarn believes that it doesn't look good in purple... (the kitchen, however, was covered <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)<br>
It's been so long since I actually knitted anything, I've spent most of 2007 feeling absolutely lousy one way or another. What do you think?

It's interesting- to be honest, the brazilwood is blood red. I don't know if I didn't simmer the chips for long enough or what, but that's not really the effect I was aiming for. (The photo makes it look more orangey than it is, though.)
