We were dyeing...

My friend Lotti wanted to dye some wool for felting...
I thought as long as my oven is turned on...
I might as well fulfill a long standing order...
400 gramms, which would be enough for a smaller/short sleeved seater...If spun thin even more...
South american wool, that is very much like Falkland, but even finer by a couple of microns.
Its already packed up in a box to get posted to its new owner.

What to do on a crowded train?

Very crowded "vacation train" (one of the two cars closed off for "technical reasons" and everyboby is stuffed into one of the cars...)... what to do? Throw a beachtowel (needs washing anyway) down the ground on the isles between the seats and knit. From hanspun alpacca. Black. Lace. With beads.

Pink period

Or so it seems iam having one... pink period that is. I found myself spinning mauv-ish, pinkish thingies lately.
This is the last one from this batch, with wich I returned to my favourite spinning style.
100 gramms of merino/silk, spun into thin laceweight yarn. 7-800 meters, two ply.
