Mocha quilt is finished! :) Hooray! For days and days I pondered the possibilities of the binding fabric... Why not just bind with the backing fabric once and a while? Nothing else seemed right.
The finished size is only 34 x 42". I intended for it to be a lap quilt. Me gustalo muchisimo! :)
I have also been dying yarn with Kool-Aid. The color is nowhere NEAR as dark as I wanted it to be, so I'm breakin' out the Rit Dye... We'll show that yarn a thing or two! Here's the Kool-Aid stained yarn:
I used cherry with a dash of grape to get this color. It's possible I should have used two packs of the cherry Kool Aid per skein, but who knew? It's my first try. I got four skeins of this mystery yarn during my thrifting adventure this week. IT WAS $1!!! FOUR SKEINS!! There's a lot of yardage, and I'm pretty sure it's pure lamb's wool that someone spun... The original color looks just like sheep. :)
Anyway, I'm still sticking to the Finishing Act of January 2007 for now. (but I did manage to sneak in a pair of one-hour booties for my bestest-ever friend...) heehee
