We Were So Close....

Those of you who read Rian's Pages know that she is visiting friends in 'cottage country' north of Toronto. We had hoped to get together before she flew home - I was going to drive to the airport, pick up Rian and Jim and take them out for lunch. Unfortunately, their flight leaves a lot earlier than originally thought, and it just isn't going to work. It's so disappointing that she is so close, yet still so far away. I told her she'd just have to come back - real soon!

I'm having trouble finding graduated hand dyes for my upcoming class. Can anyone recommend an on-line source? Carol Bryer Fallert used to sell them, but her website says she is getting out of the business. I need 3 graduations of at least 6 colours - and I need to order them soon or they won't arrive in time. I've Googled just about everything I can think of, but can't come up with much. HELP - please!

I wanted a break at lunch today so dropped into a local wool shop. Oh, my, I could start a whole new addiction with some of the gorgeous fibres available these days. Must keep reminding myself it hurts my hands to knit.....must keep reminding myself it hurts my hands to knit....must keep reminding myself.........

Starr Fabrics has lovely hand dyes in gradations, and Cherrywood Fabrics does as well. Good luck on the hunt!
