Early in November I dyed up a pound of yarn in my oven, using four related color pathways which I blogged about here. I hadn't planned any colors when I started but apparently my mind was stuck in a violet mode. I'll look for ideas outside my head when I dye the next batch.
I finished spinning, washing and fulling the skeins yesterday. The good news is that they all can be used together. The bad news is that they really aren't very different. I have Deb Menz's Color Works book on the sofa with me and am thinking about color, color color, but different color. I'll be looking at my Photoshop results too.
For years I've been asked if I sell my handspun and I have emphatically said no. I've decided to put these skeins in my Etsy store and see what happens, because I have one guaranted customer. Me.
Thanksgiving snuck up on me this year. We always go up here the day after to cut Christmas trees, and this year it appears that we will have to deal with mud and snow. That's five days from now!
Afterwards we go to a small cafe in Chilcoot for breakfast, but it's going to be bittersweet. It's the last year for DS Josh and his family as the moving van cometh on December 1st.
In Praise of Grilled Cheese and Wool Socks!
