And a Restart

One night of cooler air and good sleep has left me groggy, but ready for the weekend.


I am still doing a lot of dyeing wool. And I am going to list what the wools are, mostly for my own record. I know I’ll forget otherwise. The dark purple is a grey romney dyed with purple. Everything else but the mallard green is BFL. The mallard green is falkland wool.

I’ve got another bump drying in the basement and a bump in the crock pot. I think I’ll just keep at it today, as I don’t think there’s anything major going on, and Mr. Ink and I are anticipating some storms, so we aren’t planning yard work either.

Also in anticipation of the storms, I took a wander through my garden and took a few photos. One in particular I want to show off is my newest dahlia bloom.


Another stunner!

That’s it for today. I’ve been spinning singles like mad, so if all goes well, I’ll have 2 bobbins, almost 8 ounces, and a start to some plying.

    • Thank you! If you can believe it, the purple that’s on grey romney and the other purple are exactly the same dye. It’s certainly the grey in the romney that gives it a rich color.

    • I am hoping to! I have a friend who says she’s never had much luck saving dahlia tubers, so I’ve watched quite a few videos on the subject in hopes I can make a go of it. That being said, this year I picked up a mystery pack of 10. Most of them are white or close to white. Next year I hope to add some specific darker colors to the collection.
