I have finally got a bit of time when I am not at the end of a long day of work to catch up on my blog.
After returning from Greencastle, I had to get straight to work at my dyepots. As I may have mentioned earlier, I had quite a large amount of fiber to dye for the mill, about 130#, plus I ordered 450# of yarn to dye for my own inventory. That is pretty much all that has been happening here.
I got the fiber done first so I could get their stuff back to them asap. My yarn order arrived on the same day i finished to fiber so no rest for the weary, yet. This week I dyed the yarn and was so happy to put up my pots for awhile on Friday. I started labeling yesterday.
I have needless to say made zero progress on my knitting since I couldn’t even manage to get much reading done at the end of the day, much less do anything that required muscle movements. I do however have a couple pictures of where I was when I last touched them two weeks ago.
My Carolan above, and I am afraid I will have to do some investigating when I return to it since I have no clue where I left off in the chart.
The onesie is nearing completion with only the bottom shaping on one side and the sleeves to go.
I also took a few of my dyeing this week. I dyed almost 1500 skeins in 3 days, so this is only a small sampling. I don’t want to bore you. 😉
These are the reds I did on Friday and below is what I could get in the frame of the buckets of already dried yarn. There are many more that are not shown.
I will try to get back to posting more when this is all done and I start traveling again. My next event is Shepherd’s Harvest in Minnesota on Mother’s Day weekend.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that I am going to Chicago with Jerry this coming Tuesday for a mini vacation. We have only done this maybe three times in our 30 years of marriage and I am looking forward to it very much. We are going two nights to a concert and then to spend a night at my third daughter’s. Their new baby is due soon and it would be a nice bonus if baby was born by then.
I will try to get in at least one update while I am on my much needed break. Take care!
