mmm, watermelon!

Thanks for all of the well-wishes left on the last post.  It has been a rough week but I'm cautiously optimistic that I'm nearing the end of the pain flare.  The migraine left me a couple of days ago which was a huge relief.  Chronic pain can certainly take the joy out of life.

Anyway, it's been easier to dye yarn than to sit in one position for long.  The latest dyeing was for a specific project.
I decided to make the colors a little stronger than the ones in the picture which looks like a baby sock to me.  If all goes as planned, the Watermelon Stripes Socks will be a gift for a certain young lady.

And I will leave you with some pictures of Mr. Greenjeans.  No, not the lovely cardigan pattern - Cooper.  Dan cut the lawn then went to do some garden chores.  Cooper watched him and raced around on the grass as a light rain fell, making his white legs a lively shade of chlorophyll green.

Here's a close-up.

I'm glad you are feeling better!
Cooper is such a handsome boy, even with his green legs!
Our pups look like that after the lawn was cut too, it stains easily.
