Meaning the dyebath. Here's the "exhaust fiber" on the drying rack:
Meaning also Diana and me. Non-stop fiber fun and knitting and spinning can really take it's toll on a girl! Plus she drove from and to Montgomery this weekend.
But here's some of what we were up to:
This is Diana's growing, slowly reproducing box of wool (or so it seemed - just open a 10-lb. box of Brown Sheep mill ends and see what happens!).
Here are a couple of our better "oops!" happenings:
I wanted red over the black/white Brown Sheep mill ends. Diana nicknamed this one "Barbie meets a dead skunk." She fixed it for me - it's red now.
And here's Diana's "snow fiber." It's thawing out; yep, we're calling it snow fiber because we discovered it this morning under the snow on the deck. It tried to escape off the deck yesterday afternoon, but apparently made it no further than the ramp before being stopped. There it lay, becoming covered by the overnight snow and in danger of vanishing until spring (or this afternoon, actually). I had the rare inclination to clear the snow off the ramp this morning, or it might have missed it's ride to Montgomery.
It was a super fun weekend, and one we'd like to repeat!
