I have to laugh. I keep seeing these absolutely stunning yarn cakes.

No, not This kind of cake . . . yummylayers(though it IS breathtaking, isn’t it?)

 

 

 

 

And not This kind . . . (Though, you have to admit, that is darn cute!)

 

And then there is this one, which is even CUTER!

 

 

 

Nope. We are talking This kind . . .

sockyarnPretty, huh? So, I was wondering how it was done. Droppers pouring? Nah…. So, I was cruising around youtube, taking a break and giving myself a reason to remember that when my work is done, I can go down to my studio and play . . .  and look what I Found!!

Of course, I wanted to show you photos of a bunch of these multicoloured yarn cakes at a shop I found and fell in love with, but of course I can’t find it now…. Found it!

So, next time I indulge myself with a dye job, you know what I am going to be doing!

And then, I happened to see something else that made me do a happy dance . . . I have a metric ton of acrylic yarn that I don’t like . . . bad colours, no colours, etc. So, I was thinking about giving it away, but there is some that I really like the texture of, just not the colour. Ta Daaa!!! Check this!

So, now I have great reasons to get my work done, so I can have some fun in the morning. Woooo Hooooo!!! So, yippee, skippee, time to work!

Hummm… and I have some gnarly acrylic based fabrics too –  great test subjects for doggy beds! Well, someone else’s doggy beds, cause my guys sleep in my bed . . . well, I guess it is really their bed, cause I wind up curled up in a tiny ball with them all spread out like rugs, hogging all the room!

Oh, and I found the cake photos on goodsearch.com/images!
