We were hard at work yesterday making pretty yarn! Here’s the end result, but would you like to see a little of the process?

Yep, each skein of Hand painted yarn is individually painted by hand.

They look much prettier hanging to dry, right?

I loved how the sun was shining on them and showing off the vibrant colors.

We weren’t the only ones busy yesterday though. The wood shop was in production too.

Here is a darning egg being turned. There’s a glimpse of my trailer that carries all our goodies to the festivals.

To recover from all that work I needed a relaxing evening, no? While Jerry took the crew downtown for the fireworks show, I stayed home and started a sock. Smile It’s going to be the Van Dyke Socks from Socks From the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson.
