Making Progress

This is the last of yesterday's dyeing.  I rinsed it and put it out to dry this morning.  I think I'll switch to sock yarn dyeing today as those little skeins are much easier to manipulate than the half pound skeins of the beautiful bulky wool yarn.  I have been working like a fiend to be ready for the Indie Craft Parade.  Last year I did fabulously - enough so to pay for much of the winter's hay.  This year the even has been expanded by another day so I'm really stockpiling product.  Between keeping up with my regular Saturday Market, all of the farm chores and some school artist obligations it has been a hopping few weeks.  I think I'll be due a nice cup of tea and a rest in a few weeks.


  1. I can appreciate the amount of work you are doing! Now that I am back to work I am going to need to dig deep to find the energy to keep up with dyeing! Good luck this year- I hope you sell out! :)

  2. Thanks, Kelly. Sometimes I think holding down the farm is a lot like running a nursery school ;-) I have plans every day & the animals have other plans...but it is worth every minute. I'm back in the schools which means everything from severely economically depressed to a school where I get 5 straight hours with very small groups of gifted children. I imagine the goats teach me to be flexible.
