I Dyed Yesterday, but I’m OK Today!

It was warm yesterday, but not warm enough to keep me from dyeing the most luscious mohair I just got from Psalm 23 Ranch. It is a covered fleece and is sooooo clean and soft. I dyed it with acid dyes and here is the drying rack full of beautiful color.  I plan on spinning this as the fluffy stuff on a core yarn. I can hardly wait to get to it.

Meanwhile, I am taking a break from warping my Macomber with a shawl. It is going to be all cotton and very nubbly, thanks to my friend Gayle and her cotton cones that were for sale!! More on the weaving later.

Weaving and Spinning

I have been weaving almost every day for the last month. I have taken a bit of time off to work on my Genealogy but I have been just truckin’ along. I also joined Ravlery’s Tour de Fleece and have been spinning every day also. That is really fun. I finished my “Blues, with a little help from my friends” fabric tonight. I chose a sock yarn weight wool warp in a tealish color and then added all my bits and pieces of handspun yarn in blues. I think it will make a lovely vest with the addition of another panel. Sewing will come later, just weaving now is all I want to do, along with spinning!!ImageImageImageMy Tour de Fleece yarn for the first days of the race.
