When I'm trying to get a particular shade of something, be it blue or yellow, red or green ... I suck.
I had this hat pattern in mind, where I needed particular shades of primary colours for the nautical letter flags that adorn it's brim, but attempt after attempt using my precious handspun failed to produce appropriate shades. I have now given up, gone stash diving, & found the right colours in some commercial 8plys. (I knew they were in there all along, I wanted to use my handspun & thought I had the knack. Wrong!)

I now have only one WIP left (Yggdrasil). One! Not even a travelling sock in my handbag!
My stash room looks like a tornado has swept through it as I've delved into it's deepest reaches searching for some inspiration. Hmmm .... maybe I could make those yarn angels my friend D suggested a while ago ... (You know, kind of like snow angels where you lie on your back in the snow & wave your arms & legs, but in yarn - lol)

Brilliant idea - bomb the guard dog!
I figured that a jumper would be the least uncomfortable for the dog, so I took some measurements, made a basic jumper out of some of Lincraft's Cosy Wool & embroidered "Yarn" & created a bomb complete with a lit fuse. I then waited until my gorgeous daughter visited from Melbourne to create a diversion for me, & bombed the unsuspecting creature. She was surprisingly co-operative & loved the fuss being made of her.
