Spring at last!
Sunshine, flowers and lots of buds in the garden. Although the temperature is still low, it just shows what is in store for us very soon!
I have not much weaving to share at the moment as I'm busy preparing myself for next month's Online Guild workshop Roots, woods and bugs: working with the red dyes.
At the moment I'm rewinding larger skeins of worsted and lambswool into smaller skeins. I have 1 kg of each yarn and I'm hoping to end up with lots of different colours red at the end of April. There should be enough yarn together to make a project. I already have something in mind but I will have to wait and see if it will work out the way I intend it to go.
I'm planning to dye with madder, redwood, sandelwood and cochineal. I also have dye extract from Pure Tinctoria that I want to use for the first time in this workshop, in particular red Lac but may be some more red colours.
So watch this space next month :-)
