A New Dye Record.....


has officially been set this month. So far I am at 9 1/2 pounds for the month. It's been super busy! currently, I have 16 4 oz. center-pull balls of hydrangea stacked on my kitchen table. It's so pretty. I just love to be surrounded by colors. It won't be staying, though. They will be off to their new homes next week-ish. I still have another pound and a half to finish up before I'll be done with the March Yarn of the Month club dyeing. However, I have run out of the right type of yarn (notice I did not say "run out of yarn", I'm not that foolish). So please think "Hurry up, yarn!" thoughts for me. The pic is of 8, 8 oz skeins piled on my kitchen table, before I wound them all into 4 oz balls....

I love yarn and everything about it.

Here's my latest handspun adventure. The roving is Brown Sheep Mill ends in natural grey, which I overdyed in rainbow fashion. Turned out jewel-toned. Nothing special about it, just another 2.2 ounces of soft, fluffly, fibery goodness in the world. It's firmly worsted weight with a bit of thick and thin texture. It's going up for sale this week at Knitteds and Fitteds....
