bits and pieces

January 16, 2011

–this is the staghorn lichen that has been fermenting for 7 days. It is definitely changing colour. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to become really red.

Looks like soup and smells rather strongly of ammonia!

I’ve almost finished spinning the Icelandic fleece. It is not as pink as the picture looks–or maybe that is wishful thinking.

Warping the linen. So far so good. This is 100% wet spun line linen, a product of Northern Ireland. It is beautiful!

    thanks Velma and Kathy. Oh, yes I do keep breathing–don’t like the alternative! Kathy, each towel will have a different weft and one will be blue, or perhaps two.

    Looking forward to seeing your linen project. Is the weft going to be dyed blue? I am enjoying the lovely pictures that you have posted. It’s helping me to become more adventurous with colour.
