Just finished the aforementioned Merino wool, and have ended up with about 440 yards, just as
planned hoped. “Planned” indicates much more purposeful skill than I actually have.
I seriously hope I am not talking out my ass, here. Because I do that. ALL the time. I just bust out all this textile verbiage, like I know what I’m talking about. But really, it’s all experimentation and learning.
Possibly if I was able to FOCUS on one craft, I might be able to take my skills up a notch, to a true intermediate knitter, spinner, dyer, weaver. But there is SO much to play with, SO much to try. I cannot focus. I do not want to. I want to move as I am compelled to move.
So for now, “plans” are to mordant over the next month, then more natural dyeing. Maybe while I’m waiting around for mordanted shit to dry so I can dip it in some other bath of something or other then hang it to dry again for another twenty-four hours, I can finish those boxer shorts, the half-bagged fleece, the shawl, that fringe, my vest, and some quilting. Maybe.
