June 2009


Well...June certainly squeaked into the month! Very cute - and I like cuffed socks too.
lol found your webpage when searching for different energy drink flavors, dont know how that happened!
Well I hope you enjoyed the diversion. I am not sure how you got to the tennis socks entry but I suspect you got the the site because we knitters and spinners like to dye yarn and fleece with Kool Aid. It's perfect in that unlike many other dye substances you can do it in your kitchen without risking poisoning. Here's a nice blog entry from someone else: http://www.snowangels.com/sketchbook/?page_id=418 The only snag is that you find it hard ever after to consider actually drinking the stuff.
