The blue period

Mtlaise is having a blue period (in that she is enjoying her new wheel, and spinning blue roving), and it got me thinking about my Nini. She knows lots of words, but she only likes one.


Dida called me today, and in the background I hear: blue? blue. bloooooooooooooo. BLUE. bl.ewwwwwwwww. BLUE. blue? Dida says: Can you say green? Nini: Gree (pause) blue?

By the end of the call I was falling over, I was laughing so hard, but I have to say that I am not a fan of repetition, so this would drive me insane. I'd need meds. Dida is very brave and patient, and it is good that God made mothers love their children more than life itself, or I believe my daughter would be insane very shortly.

Today I dyed, and I dyed, and I dyed, and I dyed. I worked on my process, and I'm rethinking my use of colour... while I spin Mandie's Merino/Soy blend.. lovely. Pink. Salmon. No blue to be seen.

(psst.. don't click on the picture. It's as big as a house)
