The monsoon season has started, most of the rains happen in the afternoon and early evening. Any outside activities need to be done in the morning. Pat and I went hiking in Ramsey Canyon Nature Conservancy on Friday morning. The deer were everywhere. And I think this one will have a fawn soon.
The bayberries were plentiful.
The afternoon finds me in the air-conditioned studio with spinning, knitting and weaving. Duffy loves to watch the spinning wheel go round.
This is my Tour de Fleece project. I’m spinning Cormo fleece from Basically Benita’s Dyed in the Wool Biz. It going to be a 2 ply rug yarn for my next tapestry. Half of it will stay white, the rest will be dyed. Not sure about the colors yet.
I finished knitting the tilted block cowl.
Two of the “Yarn Babes” teach a knitting/crochet class to a school group each year and they asked it I could give a weaving demonstration. I’ll take several of my portable looms and will make several of the “cardboard” pin looms for the students to try and take home.
I’m enjoying the rain, we need it so badly! But it does get in the way of our normal routine,
Take care and See ya,
