Two pictures in one. My spinach is growing loverly and I dyed this freshly spun two ply alpaca laceweight yarn for this month's project spectrum's challenge. Yellow, green and pink...a triad. The pink came out more red...oh well. Not really something I would pick in color combinations, but at least I got to experience it. Kinda reminds me of cotton candy actually.
The purple birds nest is some purple died alpaca HAND BLENDED with burgandy dyed silk caps. I like the sploches of burgandy here and there from the un-uniform silk roving.
Next is the soap cosy I knit out of a one ply thick and thin yarn that was one of the first I spin up. Nice! Eventually it will felt up and when the soap is gone, I will make a special charm pouch out of the felted material. Nifty Aye?!
And the last picture is of my precious Dwarf Lilac bush. It is absolutely FILLED with leaves this year! I am so happy it bounced back from last year. Last year I kept it inside over winter because I feared the roots would dye if they froze. I guess not. There are only a few flower clusters, but that is enough for me because the anticipation of the upcoming frangrance explosion is driving me mad!! I love lilac!!
Until next time...
