my non-blogging purgatory has come to an end. i'm taking some time to work on fun stuff for a little while. I've decided to do away with the lengthy WIP-it Wednesday posts because of the effort involved. In the future I will simply stick to whatever is in progress for the week.
I finally got around to putting some of my naturally dyed fabric in the shop. There's too much of it now to justify using it all in my own projects. I have several fat quarters available with more coming by the end of the week.
UPDATE: I listed more dyed fabrics in the shop.
One of my fun projects is in the works. Since the weather has turned cooler all I can think about is warm cozy winter woolens. The Acer Cardigan (rav) has been on my list for a long time now. I cast-on for the 34" size with Wollmeise DK in Grashupfer, my favorite shade of green. I'm alternating skeins even though i hate doing it and i'm not positive it's necessary. I figure it's better to be safe than sorry with hand-dyes.
I bought a Turkish spindle from Riley Wood and Fiber Art. i got a medium in walnut and zebrawood (i think) and it's smaller than i was expecting. i am spinning a little over an ounce of undyed CVM pin-drafted roving. it's easy to get obsessed with winding on a perfect center-pull ball. I haven't had time to spin much but now i'm trying my best to spin a little bit every day.
