Dye Candy

eileen's wool

I know I'm cheating here: these are not mine. Eileen spun and dyed this wool for a sweater. She has more spinning and dyeing to go (this is about a pound and a half of sport weight), but these were just too pretty not to share. These are from our recent dye day, she is now spinning more for the next dye day. Dye days always come around eventually.

Eileen is a spinning fool these days, and has been since our retreat at St. Mary's Art Center last June. I don't know what set her off, but she's afire. Isn't it just too fun when that happens, and we obsessively knit/spin/dye/weave until the moment passes? It's also fun to watch, as Eileen spins and spins and spins.

Me? Well things are happening here, but they are not blog-worthy. I will be depending on my friends for a while, especially to keep Patricia happy and off my case. Patricia is a fearsome sight when provoked :).

I'm delighted at you're effort to keep me unprovoked. Keep those postings coming and you'll be able to sleep with both eyes closed. And, happy Thanksgiving too. See you after we're stuffed with turkey.

What rich colors! I am eager to see what she makes from these, and wish I could catch the fire AND find the time to be highly productive with both spinning AND knitting at the same time... Happy Thanksgiving.
