The snow - it's still here. I think we've had new snow or blowing snow every day all month.
This is Eleanor. She has pushed me through drifts deeper than I could have imagined. From my experience, the commercials aren't a mock-up - Forresters really do plow through the snow, but it's not fun unless you're the professional with a film crew. My picture doesn't capture how dirty she is - she's dirty and she earned it. Those drifts in front of the house are a mockery of what Eleanor has negotiated this week. In the midst of beefy trucks, she has held her own - to my huge relief. Phew~
So I tried to photograph the difference in ways to blend on the drum carder, and it just doesn't show up. The two skeins are different enough that I plan to contrast them in a bag. I separated the colors into two pathways, carded and pulled them into roving to spin for the right skein. I do believe the difference will show when knitted, it just doesn't show up when photographed. So what's new, eh?
