Our redwood trees started shedding the first dried branchlets this week. It’s a gray day with a hint of cool drizzle in the air – a jeans and sweatshirt day. My antidote to the grey is this merino yarn I had spun awhile ago and put in my stash. Easy pattern for a scarf and great color.
I also love the color contrast of this heather flowering in our garden right now.
Today has been mostly cloudy after almost 1 and a half inches of gentle rain in 24 hours. But that is always perfect weather to find sanctuary in my little studio.
Here is today’s Tour de Fleece installment of a bobbin of Shetland singles on my Kromski Minstrel. Thai is my first time spinning Shetland and thank goodness I am enjoying it as I have 2 pounds!
I have been appreciating the vibrant colors in these heathers in our garden. Even when they are not flowering the foliage often adds a stunning contrast.
As I was spinning, one of our resident squirrels hung from the window screen and was undeterred by my presence in a quest for sunflower seeds and peanuts.
