The clouds and skies have been stunning lately. Skudding cloud formations which have developed into storm fronts or just blown away. I like this season as the weather is so unpredictable and the light is amazing without the harsh brightness of summer.
Plenty of weaving. Who'd have thought that a steely grey warp with a sunshine yellow weft would produce an overall green shade. The light variations in the dye give the cloth a speckled appearance.I'm trying to complete a line of alpaca herringbone scarves and then I can go and play on the striped warp I have wound.
Wednesday's dye day could have been warmer. A good wind later meant the skeins dried really quickly. The cat seems to enjoy the steamy atmosphere of the dye shed although the dyeing activity or was it the fumes sent her to sleep.
I live 20 minutes from small town in the South Island of NZ.
