If you don't like it, change it

This is a great philosophy to live by, but sometimes it feels very overwhelming and  difficult to make the changes you think you need to make your life better. Change doesn't have to be big though. It can be something small.... and that small thing can make you happy in a small way...... and if you do enough small things to make yourself happy.... pretty soon, you've made the change you needed, it just might not have been what you had originally thought you required

The change I made this week was to fix something that was bugging me.

Last summer I knit this top. I loved the pattern,  but wasn't thrilled about the colour or the fit through the shoulders....

so I did this:

I used Tie-Dye dye (as recommended for cotton) in Blue... Blue + yellowish = greenish

Which did this:

and I'm happy.....

What??? You were expecting something more profound???

  1. So great that you have the guts to do things like this!!
    I have some handspun which needs to be dyed, but I'm too chicken to actually do it, fearing it will wreck the yarn... I can't imagine doing it to a FO :-)
