Walking and Dyeing

For a couple months now my neighbor, Billie and I have been walking two miles each day down our country road. We try to do it in half an hour. Max and Cassie ↑ go along on leashes if it's not too sloppy. Then they sack out for the rest of the day. I'm told that some folks don't allow their critters on their furniture ☺

I don't have a lot to say today except that I seem to have gotten the dyeing bug. Here's a few of my yesterday creations from white alpaca, merino, and mohair roving. I feel ok about using it up because I have 10 more pounds right now at Zeilinger's mill.
Four more ounces are cooking away in my crock pot, while four ounces are soaking in vinegar water.

Beautiful colors, isn't dying addictive? I'm spinning a bright red that I dyed last week.

Gorgeous, girl. You seem to use the same methods as I do. I don't dye until the weather warms up and I can do it outside.
I'm going to learn to knit socks tonight . . . I hope.

What pretty spring colors!!! I made some cats with your alpaca this time. I'm having so much fun with it!

I figure we wouldn't want to sleep on the floor, so why should our friends and companions? My cat actually sleeps on ME at night - even the bed isn't good enough for her.

The fiber colors are beautiful!
