Annoying the way life gets in the way of yarn projects! However lots of wool and knit stuff went on regardless - perhaps a little guiltily.
Got some photos to remind me of some of the end of summer and early autumn projects and plonked them here.
The garden has been pretty busy this year too so plonked some photos of that below too.
Surprised cat crochet bag:
Neck warmer - my hand spun yarn dyed with Japanese Indigo leaves. The light orange bit is dyed with the Canadian version of Kool Aid
More J. Indigo leaf dyed hand spun:
700 plus yards of lace weight hand spun dyed with Kool Aid Grape; Hoping to knit a lacy scarf from "Victorian Lace Today" by Jane Sowerby on loan from Lindy.
The second self-striping sock got finished - good thing too as the boiler broke down;
The hand spun stash is gretting out of control. A little of it:
, , etc...
But more on the way -
some Buddlia dyed 2 ply hand spun :
A little weaving:
Lace knitting based on a pattern in "Luscious lace":
Plan to dye this red (using Landscape dye "Salmon") when and if completed
When it gets cold and dark and frosty, these photos may remind me that it all grows back again:
The roadside hedge in berry and leaf:
Gigantic mushroom in the field:
A few spuds:
The trees graced us with a few apples this year:
Can't show the rhubarb as it all went down the red land:
A few goosegobs still in the freezer and quite a lotof blackcurrents too
The hens continue to be very productive and have sorted their differences:
They've taken to sleeping side by side among the branches of a tree above their hen house. The hen house roof has become a manure heap.
