Update: more sparkly stuff

I spent last week with a slightly-sick kid (again) and recovering from all the hullaboo surrounding Easter. Yesterday Little Miss lost a tooth, blaming it on Elvis (she said he knocked it out by hitting her with a pillow) and then she tried to convince us that since other kids in her class get $20 from the Tooth Fairy (allegedly) she should, too. Nice try, Little Miss. Even though I think she looks adorable without the top tooth, she refused to smile except with her lips tightly clamped shut. (But she still looks cute...)


I also did a bunch of dyeing last week, including some Twist O'Silk sock yarn (superwash wool/bamboo/silk)


Thistle



Grassland

and some Stella, the sparkly fingering weight yarn (mix of wool, silk, nylon and silver):


Space Oddity



Krypton Sun

So if you're in the mood to treat yourself, go have a look!

Coming tomorrow, another book review...

Actually, Little Miss is correct. A certain Mr. Tooth Fairy once left my DD $20 because he didn't have change. I'm not kidding.

Krypton Sun - Wonderful name, beautiful yarn.

Funny, my daughter lost a tooth yesterday, too... and she looked at me soulfully and declared that she hoped the Tooth Fairy would leave a little more that her usual dollar.

I warned her that asking fairies for favors was a tricky business... you might get what you asked for but you would be sure to regret it later.

Our fairy leaves Sacagawea golden dollar coins. Hope I can still get a hold of them in a few years when the last teeth go!

Love the sci-fi color names for the Stella!

Back in the early 70s, the going rate was a fifty-cent piece. Wish I had kept a few of them!

The big bucks only come out here for messy bloody accidents- such as the not quite 2 year old knocking both top teeth out at once. Otherwise, the miserly tooth fairy here just leaves one dollar.
