I was going for something a mite more fiery - a truer red at the very least instead of the salmon-y melon colour I ended up with. Plain and simple, this is Wiltons red and orange. I should have known better when I was dissolving the red in boiling water and resulting liquid looked like Hawaiian Punch. Oh well, like I said - it's still pretty. Anyone want to name it? I didn't use Patons Classic Wool this time. The last time I was at AC Moore they had Moda Dea's Washable Wool on for half-price, so I decided to give that a shot. It is pure wool, but cabled and slinky-soft. The yardage is a about 50 yards less than Patons Classic Wool so I don't see getting two hats out of it unless they are baby hats.

about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This
is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams
and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that
there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it
should also be remembered that this is a card of great
creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition.
You may be going through a time of emotional and mental
trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be
vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or
alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage.
This time however, can also result in great creativity,
psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust

What do you think? I think it is a little harder to be objective about this one - so be subjective with me!
