Summer Was Busy, And Now Fall Is Most Definitely Here . . .

Crafty projects were mostly garden and cooking related this summer. Lots of baking, grains, and recipe collecting. Experimented with the plants and fruits of the growing season in the dye pots and in the oven. Spun up some Alpaca and Perendale, and dyed Jewelweed, Turmeric and Golden Rod. Washed wool, planted seeds, enjoyed views of foreign sheep, and said goodbye to a special lady.

Alpaca, Border Leicester, and Romney 3-ply yarn made this summer.

Thrilled to sell Pig Secret, and see it hanging in its new home.

The biggest head of lettuce we've ever seen.

Lyn and Steve saw sheep in a British cemetery.

We got very good at baking bread this summer.

Washing a pot of Icelandic Sheep Fleece on the porch.

Now, the colder nights of October have arrived and I find myself stalling to go out and do the final garden chores/cleanup, walk Igby for a longer stretch, and instead turn to the warmth of my wool projects and plans for the future of WalkingWool Studio + Gallery, and our little family.
