I just finished my version of October is for Spinners.
Then I had several bad ideas.
Bad Idea #1: I would try my hand at painting with dye. This wasn't the fatal error, I had decided I would overdye with red or something and the black would just be for accent.
Bad Idea #2: Microwave for same time and power level as a whole skein of wet yarn. There is now a hole burned through my spider. Poop. What to do?
