Hiding my hands at work today...

I took a night off from job hunting to dye up some yarn. So much fun- it's been a long time since I last did it. When I peeled off my gloves I was horrified to see that both hands were stained with all the colors I used. G called me zombie hands- the fading browns/yellows look like old bruises and the greens/blues are just scary (and the teal stained nails aren't helping!)

I only have two big meetings with vendors today... I just hope they don't notice my hands. (Granted, I've been through this before... I used self tanner way back in the early 90s when I received my Bachelors, and forgot to wash my hands. I had bright orange hands in my graduation pictures. Yipes.)

It's very bad when I decide to reward myself with yarn for getting a good job. I've promised myself several skeins of Socks that Rock with my first new paycheck. I peeked on their website and fell in love with Sugarplums. But until then... with the exception of spoiling my pal for Secret Pal/Sock exchanges, I am not to buy yarn. (Yes, I know I tried this before but this time I mean it. Really.)

Hello my dear sockpal,
I truly hope you find a job soon, it's hard to resist all that yarn calling for you;-)
I just wanted to drop you a note that I'm running late on sending out your socks - the last months have been extremely busy, but it's finally quieted down a little and I've been working on your socks exclusively! I'm almost done with the pair and I'm sure I'm going to be able to send them your way this week. Sorry about the delay.

Not a problem about the delay at all- I'm just relieved to hear from you!!

I hope you're able to enjoy the rest of your summer. :)

Hey K...I wanted to leave you a post on your new blog, but it looks like I need to have an account there to do it. I don't want another account, so I'll leave a comment here. I am at my friend's house & she taught me to dye with Kool Aid. Yep my hands are quite a hue of hot pink of some sort!! VERY FUN!! I can see why you like this. Everyone has been dyeing & it made me want to try it!! Hope you are having a great weekend!
