Seems like I haven't posted much fibery stuff recently, but I have been working on a couple things. I've been spinning the rest of the merino/silk I dyed in January- I finished the purple a while ago, and am about a third of the way through the Sapphire.
It's a lovely blue, like a tropical sea and a hot early autumn afternoon sky in New England and the inside of a glacier all melded together. Or, to put it another way, this color IS the essence of sapphire.
I've also been weaving, and have finished the second huck lace stole. I'm going to weave off the third one as well before taking them off the loom. I'm really liking this pattern, and think I may do another set of stoles to put in my shop after these are finished. It's easy to keep track of where I am in the treadling sequence, and the results are so elegant.
