go away gray!

it's been so gray here - spring is coming, but not quickly enough for me!

16mar07


the gray skies & dreary days have been getting to me - i've always found the winters here particularly hard & this year has been no exception. in an attempt to cheer myself up, i've been continuing the "spring colours" dyeing experiments. the latest?

nothing but blue skies


more superwash bluefaced leicester sock yarn for the old maiden aunt shop, another 100 gram & 380 yard skein, colourway "nothing but blue skies" - some bright, spring-sky blues interspersed with darker blues & even a little purple. & a closeup:

nothing but blue skies - closeup


& i've finally finished spinning & plying the bluefaced leicester & silk blend fibre, which is still a bit disappointingly muted compared to the bright jewel tones of the dyed roving, but pretty nonetheless:

little fish


both skeins have been added to the shop so if you want them, go & get them!!!
