Thanks for the info, Chris! DH and FIL hadn't completed the transfer of title in MI, so if we don't do that first, we have to pay sales tax in TX. In MI, you don't have to pay the tax if it's a family sale. So FIL is finding out what to do to transfer the title there. I think it's a $30 fee, which beats the 6.25% sales tax we'd have to pay here!

About the cottondyeing: You can use the dylon for it, it's fiber-reactive. Because the dye has to react with the fiber you need some patience. An hour seems really short, I usually let the dye set for at least 2 hours, preferably 12. The longer you set the dye, the brighter the colors. You can use multiple colors on the yarn, just like you'd do when you dye wool.

Hi everyone,

Just had a quick look at the pics, great looking socks everyone.

My cold is much better and yesterday I went into town and visited JoAnn, Michaels and Ben Franklin. Couldn't get too inspired, plus I don't have a lot of extra cash. I did buy one of the huge balls of Sugar and Cream that are on sale at Michaels for $3.99. I am going to make kitchen towels.

The weather in the Seattle area has been beautiful but today is much cooler and cloudy. No rain since I have been here though.

Happy Knitting.

Sales tax is 8.25% here in Austin, but we don't have state income tax.

Ok so this is OT, but we're OT & I think Tami will like it anyway...isn't this the prettiest thing?!

I want it so much! Gotta wait till I clean Grandma's house again & mow her grass...since it's $97 but it will spin fingering-sport weight yarn! perfect for making socks, right?! o Santa Clause. . .

Just a quickie fly by, it's starting to thunder and lightening!

Julie~I would definately put that on a wish list! It's very pretty! for Jacob getting into pre-K. How fun is that going to be! Bailey will love having you more to herself when he goes!

Sue~Glad you're feeling better! How's your son doing?

Everyone's socks are looking great! Our sales tax here is 8% (county and state combined). Some areas on NY have as high as 9.25% tax.
I better go....I'll check back in later!

Tami yes it's a Golding & I just sold my Dad (he wanted to pay me for it) my old camera (Fuji) that I was gonna put on e-bay so we'll see what he wants to give me for it...whatcha think, sounds like spindle $ to me.

Tami I have some Teesdale that I'm spinning & once its spun I dont know what to do with it, ply it or not? What have you found out? or what are you doing with yours?

ETA the 3% tax I spoke of is just our vehicle tax, our normal sales tax is 6.875%

I want the one with aroma therapy.



Put a drop or two of essential oil in the wool at the bottom and spin your way to peace and happiness.

In the same order I would have to get a new ball winder.



With a carved whorl, it is only $535 US.
