Our first batch of (7!!) fleeces.  Processed the white fleece from two Jacobs today. More lovely spinning out at Leewood.

Obsessive listening – soundtrack of this summer’s drives.

I especially love this live performance in NY.

And the one below on French TV.  Puts me in mind of David Byrne’s Big Suit in Stop Making Sense.

Blissful mornings at Leewood on Dartmoor with Jane Deane and small group of crafters.

Lovely, helpful, experimental dyer based in Wales who tries out all colour families, bases and techniques.

 

I made a version of Joji’s 3 colour cashmere shawl with Kate’s Time for Some Drama ! and Faded memories.  The colour saturation and placement is fantastic and her yarn bases are lovely to work with.
