Spring is sprung...


......some seeds are finally in the ground. The temperature is easing up oh so slowly, lambs are fattening, trees are budding and the fact that the boiler is broken again is not quite as painful as it would have been a few weeks ago!

I've been dyeing more scrumptious sock yarns which I'll post up here as soon as they are dried, reskeined and ready to go in the shop. It's 75%wool/25%nylon for harder wearing socks. I've also acquired some wool/bamboo sock yarn and have dyed one skein so far - it takes dye beautifully.
I did knit a mad wee teacosy from some of the multicoloured yarn balls I made - just have not remembered to photograph it yet. Here instead is a delicious colour feast of Noro yarn that I am using in my stripey jumper. Only the back done so far as I haven't sat down to knit for a while.

Ah,that tea cosy. I've seen it "in the flesh" and it's lovely! Look forward to seeing the new dyeing results.

That Noro yarn is lovely, I knit a beanie hat in it a few months ago.

Such lovely colors...

I finally got out and bought a bunch of seeds today. I'm terribly late for a number of things, but I'll see what I can still manage. It's been so cool and wet, maybe I'll still manage alright.

AND I plan to *finally* make it to the post office this week, with your very very tardy package... (I really am sorry! I bought it back in February and am just now getting to do more than sit with my butt glued to the studio chair!)
