So, only the bare minimum has been getting done...and sometimes not even that. But today, I can share pictures I took before we all got sick. I'm going to do all things fiber to catch up all at once:
Andrea's etsy shop. Andrea from Wisdom Begins in Wonder is the hostess of Fiber Arts Fridays, just in case you have missed that. And I spun it up into this beauty...
I will be knitting this up into a hat for myself...oh yes I will! But first, I have to finish a few projects that are already on the needles.
And, just to document my progress for my own self...
The yarn on the left is the second last that I spun, and the yarn on the right is this last batch. Progress!
I have four ounces of the white spun up and ready to dye and after I do the other 4, I will be doing another plant dye. I have already picked it out, and it is bookmarked in the book on my bookshelf, but I forget what I picked. I will share for sure once it comes out of the dye bath...but honestly that is still probably weeks away.
And this is something I am very pleased with the way it turned out. Remember that white cotton that I dyed hoping to make a self striping yarn? It is working. In fact it is working very very well!
And...a totally unrelated picture, but this is part of what is keeping me away from crafting and from the computer:
It is berry season. I don't get a whole lot at once, but I do have to pick them and clean them every day and what we don't eat goes into the freezer to be "turned into something" once I have enough. I will be trying my hand at jam in the next few weeks. Wish me luck!
