October is a gathering month; when you have trees all around your home, nearly every free minute is spent gathering leaves in the fall. The summer's weather created a bumper crop of leaves, as well as walnuts, grass and other growing things. This was good for many - our neighbor baled a late hay crop and the numerous varieties of great Michigan apples are in abundant supply so it is totally lame for me to complain about a few extra leaves and walnuts. We will finish gathering leaves, squirrels will gather the nuts and some will gather extra foods to put away for winter.
It is also a time to gather supplies for our crafts, knitters need yarn and felters or spinners need fiber. Four new colorways of hand dyed yarn are posted to the website; purples and blues . Merino fiber selections are restocked as available and new ones added. This is Lemon, softer yet deeper in shade value than the Yellow and blends well with Gold. I hope we can help with your gathering for winter wool creations.
