Yarny things, new and old
Majacraft Magic camp recently. Wonder if GrannyG or Jessica would recognise their hand dyed sliver now. Also bits of silk, rayon and shaggy knitting threads in there. My drum carder is a bit small so I had to divide everything in half and make two batts to get a decent sized skein.
Actual evidence I have none.
But my aunt's charwoman's sister's son
Heard a policeman on his beat
Say to a housemaid in Downing Street
That he had a brother, who had a friend,
Who knew when the war was going to
So that's all this time, I've got wool in the dye pot which should be ready for rinsing. I'm preparing for a run of blankets influenced by the tui bird. Also have some shibori scarves being woven on the dobby loom but white twill is rather boring to photograph.
