#95 of 365 - Happy Easter


Today I learned why eggs are dyed red in orthodox tradition. I also got a red egg whilst at church. The red egg is based on the story of Mary Magdalene telling Tiberius Ceasar about Jesus' resurrection and he scoffingly saying it was about as true as the chances of the egg in her hand turning red. Well the egg did turn red in her hand, thus the tradition of dying eggs red was born.

I wore Summer with Ishbel and got many compliments on it. I discovered however, that I won't ever make it in a micro-fiber again as the points aren't holding. Synthetic fiber has it's own mind. I may try wet blocking and steam to see if I can get this yarn to hold the points. Still looks lovely and drapes on the shoulders nicely.

I'm glad you clarified the red egg story. Had never heard that one.

As long as the shawl is still wearable it's all good right? Too bad about the points though:(

oh no..sorry to hear the points ended up not holding after all with the microspun yarn. :( starch?
