A winner is me  
My first game tonight was a 153. That's the second best I've ever bowled. My others weren't so great (82, 103), but still. I am getting the hang of throwing the ball properly...so I am a happy person. I also made some random guy very happy by giving him half a pitcher of Yuengling. Nobody else on my team wanted to drink and I can't finish an entire pitcher by myself, but I knew somebody would want the leftovers. Sharing is caring. Weeeee.

I figured that five hours of soaking in soda ash was enough to fix the dye, so I took the fabric out to start rinsing it, and I am very happy with the results. The base shade is just what I wanted it to be, and the darker green variegations are generally subtle. It's more blotchy than veiny and there are a few very pale blotches, but considering that this is my first try at dyeing anything and part of the fun of any sort of tie dyeing is the randomness of the results, it's all good. My main goal was to get the base shade of green right, and I did that, so w00t.

And I can't wait to show it off! ^_^ I rinsed it out in the tub, and it's in the wash right now. It actually wound up being a bit lighter and more variegated than I originally thought, but still, it's a nice overall effect and it's not too Grateful Dead shirt-ish. I won't have any way of taking pictures before Wednesday night at least, but if you guys want to randomly stop over for random neighbor hanging out or whatever, you can certainly see my freshly dyed fabric.
