September has zoomed by and I hope my knitting and I will have more quality time in October. Here's a quick update on what I have accomplished lately.
Autumn Rose is progressing a bit up the sleeve. This is an amazing knit and I highly recommend it. The colours are lovely.
I tried my hand at crock pot dying and used Louet Bush Blend dyes. Here are the results on some Corriedale I got at the 5 Counties Fair. I used Aster, Cypress and Peppermint and the effect is simply "Monet-like". I'm so pleased.
I'll be dividing this down the middle in two parts to spin each ply in the same sequence to create a two ply yarn that hopefully keeps the colour changes in unison throughout the plying.
My Sonata and I enjoyed the autumn sun yesterday and I'm really please with how this is spinning up. The Corriedale simply glows.
Well - gotta run to catch a plane. I'll have lots to report next week on the wine side of things and hopefully a bit of airplane knitting too.
