Shopping day!!!

Shopping day!!! magnify

I went to see the doctor, and I have a re-appointment on Friday… brr…
But I also went shopping and among other things bought me these pretty socks 🙂
I also bought a green pair of socks 🙂
There’s a picture in the photo album.

I couldn’t find a knitting store in whole Stockholm! I know I don’t get out often enough, but the store I used to use has been closed, and I was adviced to another shop – which, to be fair, has a large sortiment of yarns: Swedish, Norwegian and couple of other kinds of yarns, all kind of colors and materials, from pure acryl to soft and in my mind cheap alpaca. In very pretty colors 🙂 I think I’m going to get some of that a little later 🙂

But I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I bought white yarn, and thought of trying the Cool Aid dyeing. So next I headed to Gray’s… and guess what? THEY DIDN’T HAVE COOL AID IN ANY OTHER FLAVORS BUT ORANGE AND GRAPE!!! *blah*

So I figured out that Cool Aid is basically a darn lot of food coloring – so I tried it with food coloring and it worked! And I do have red food coloring 🙂 So I’m happy 🙂

Now I have one ball of pure white and one ball of the sweetest pink, and they will be the cutest white-pink-striped socks ever! I love the smell of wool when dyed 🙂
