i recently picked up a little knitting i began over a year ago. i was gifted a whole lot of yarn. i kept all the wool and cotton. i would love to use it all up, slowly. the cone of pale blue wool above on that table will be a basic pullover sweater.
the sun and shadows are real nice this morning.
just before it got dark last night i remembered i had to go pick more sumac. i've been collecting the leaves from a stand just across the road from me. i soak them over night, then boil and strain and then dye. it's an alternative to purchasing prepared tannic acid for mordanting and as a first step to the greys and blacks i've been working on.
i'm going to go out now and work some more on that. i found a few handmade crocheted vintage table clothes at an antiques shop yesterday so i will dye them and have them in the shop soon.
and i've got a new indigo pot going. my last one crapped out during my house move.
