Still Progressing!


My sweater is still progressing nicely - I just have a bit more to knit.


I did finish combing another bit of raw fleece - this one just over 100g.


As part of my experimenting with the raw fleeces, I tried dyeing it in a pot for a change. I find that the spun yarn is easy to dye, but the unspun fibre doesn't take the dye as easily. Dyeing it in a pot seemed to work really well.


I am making a three ply yarn, I hope for socks (the above photo shows the dyed fibre, drum carded fibre and the first spun bobbin).

I also washed up another raw fleece.


The big news at our house is that finally renovations have started! So many different kinds of baseboards and trims.
