It’s mighty soggy outside.
But I’m taking the groundhog at his word.
Spring is right around the corner.
Mid February means a lot of things:
fruit tree pruning
Things start moving fast.
and then it’s shearing time!
Probably within a month I’ll have five new fleeces!
So I thought I should probably get a handle on the remaining unwashed wool that I still had in the queue from last spring (yeah, I’m a little behind).
I washed up the last of Griff and Edgar on Friday.
Did some spinning on Saturday
And I got about a pound of wool carded today
That’s a pretty good wool weekend!
I’ve really got an itch to do some dyeing, and I was putting together a plan to do a madder dyebath, but I’d have to do that outside, so I’ll have to wait until the weather is more cooperative.
