Solar Active Yarn!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usImage Hosted by

Today I spun the yarn on the top left and plyed it with solar active thread! The thread looks inncocent and white, basically blends into the yarn…UNTIL…you go out in the sun! Then the thread turns a nice bright pink. Sadly the sun is sinking fast and I couldn’t get a good picture of it while it was pink. I will try again tomorrow!

I have a bunch of other colors and plan to play around making some more yarn with them. I also have glow in the dark threads, though I have no idea how I could photograph the yarn glowing. Just think your hat or scarf could look a little different inside vs. outside! Fun!

I’ll be adding the new yarns to the shop tomorrow. I have one more drying that I havent been able to take a photo of yet, so should be four to update.

We are in the midst of potty training right now (day 3) And I cannot believe how well he is doing with it! He has been able to wear regular underwear all day accident-free, its actually kind of mind boggling…but very very awesome! We even took a trip to the library and then out to eat at a cute little italian restaurant. He was able to tell me in time everytime he needed to use the bathroom! Hurray!!

    Potty training! I tried three separate methods with my oldest kid and failed, then finally resorted to tossing Cheerios in the toilet–and he was trained instantaneously! :)

    I hear Brooke is starting a knitting circle in Shepherdstown!

    Have you been to the yarn store in Winchester? I am getting ready to go right now.

    Murry Xmas

    I am so jealous…my son has tried and failed at potty training twice now. We were starting to do it again just before CHristmas but then it was just too hectic and he kept getting upset. Give me some or ANY advice. How old is your son? I know he is similar in age to mine.

    Beautiful yarn…I love the idea of the solar threads. I have seen solar beads before but not threads. I want to try the glow in the dark…what a great hat for cold nights!
