Playing in the dirt
Well, I am a red dirt knitter. And no yarn was injured in this adventure.
They are replacing the bridge over the creek down the street and they had all this dirt piled up, so disobeying all that yellow tape, me and my basket decided to have a photo op. The first time, I had a skein of brown/beige/white yarn where the berry yarn is now but it totally washed out in the harsh sunlight. So I came home and cooled off a bit and tried again. This worked better and besides a friend gave me a cold beer to celebrate success .
And just about the time that I finished the beer, it clouded up and it has just poured off and on all evening. So it's a good thing I didn't plan this for tomorrow. Somehow Red Mud Knitter just doesn't sound the same.
