Hand Dyed Yarn to date

I work in "spurts" at my fiber loves; perhaps felting a number of different pieces one after another.  Then no felting for awhile but knitting or dyeing wool/yarn takes front stage.  The  weather also adjusts my production, or at least what was planned in my head.

The past few weeks have been productive both inside and out.  The sheep are sheared, their wool has been processed into roving and that is now in the shop, new fences set up to keep the lambs corralled, snow peas are up in the garden and several new hand dyed yarn skeins are ready.

This is the latest one added to the shop and website, called New Greens, inspired by the many tree leaves that are out so early.   Earlier 2 other colors in the purple/blue range were added and almost ready is a teal combo and a brown.  Of course, if you have viewed my hand dyed yarn or wool before, you know there is never a solid color (or rarely) I love playing with colors.
