Wool in a Crock pot....A new dye pot.......and yarn.


As a lady whose partner is 4000 miles away, I have time, plenty of time to be a woman of leisure, a woman, who cleans wool. I finally got to it, well at least one crock pot full. Lots of fun putting little bundles of dirty CVM in to the crock pot and letting them set for 3-4 hrs.Oh thank you so much to   JMM   who got back to me as to clean this wool, it worked out very well.

           Then this whole time I was spinning some lovely Merino Bamboo I dyed the other day.

It was only 5:30, as it was dark and I had no one to curl up in bed with (I know I should get a cat), I curled up with a copy of the newest Wild Fiber  ( Linda if you ever read this blog I would love to work for you.Hopefully this yr Ill have a Zoology degree, but not journalism)



Mom also sent me my dye pot which I had victoriously gotten for like $5 over the summer and now had need of it, also teas cozy book? Hope I can knit.(thanks mom)


 It is now raining and I have to get up early  tomorrow, but plan on making time to mordant some yarn, get into some fibery mischief, after all I do have to go to school. Thanks also to Sherri for bringing me up a turkey plate with cranberrys as I had no turkey day, it was tasty.
