The dye pot has started work early today. This sock yarn has been labelled and sent off so time to start this weeks work.  I am dyeing sock yarn, chunky and DK weight. Not a good drying day but I'll hang the yarn in the loft to dry.

Last Friday was spent making tea cosies in the studio so some sorting and clearing the desk would be a good idea before I begin the next batch of tea cosies.

The week is busy.  I'm determined to finish the rug on the loom today. I have washed lots of white fleece so the next rug will be a mixture of hand spun and fleece.

Ready for Shearing

 These sheep are ready to be shorn. With all the lush grass the sheep are fat and have lots of wool ready to spun or woven.

 Not sure when the weather will oblige and give us a dry sunny day.  Anyway I am going to book the shearer and hope for the best

Today the rain is pouring down and the wind is blowing.
