1) Combed wool. Not a lot, but we finally had a nice weather weekend, and I got an hour or so done on the fleece I’m processing. I’m about two ounces in, and there is so far to go…

2) Cleaned the house. Finally. It’s still cluttered, and there are things out of place all around me, but it isn’t dirty. It’s been making me crazy, so it felt good to check that off.

3) Did laundry…I have clothes to wear again!

4) Finished winding the warp (measuring out all the pieces of yarn) for my next project on the small loom. 300 is a lot of pieces of yarn. Fortunately, you only have to wrap them onto the warping board and then tie them into bundles.

5) Cleaned out the garden. Removed all the tomato, eggplant, and pepper plants that were not happy with the fall weather, replaced them with mustard and spinach greens that should thrive until the first hard frost. Fingers crossed that it holds off a few more weeks.

6) Held a dye workshop in the basement. I think I’m up to five converted dyers now, which isn’t too bad. I have another two lined up, too. I wish I’d had the presence of mind to take pictures, because there were some gorgeous colors.

7) Made samples for all of my new dyes, so that I can fill in the gaps in my color cards. There were even more gorgeous colors there. I haven’t prepared their little cards yet, so they are still wrapped in plastic waiting for my attention.

8) Managed to lend a spindle and some fiber to my downstairs neighbor who has been making little interested noises about spinning for a while. Two minutes of lesson, half an hour of practice, and she’s off and running. Some people just have natural talent.

9) Worked on the sweater. Two sleeve caps have been picked up from the body, one arm has made it down to the elbow. Managing the color gradients in this yarn is a little trickier, and is calling for strategic skein usage. I think it’s working so far.

10) Began spinning the fleece I bought at the Sheep and Wool festival. We’re about 3/4 of a bobbin in.

11) Washed some sweaters so that Branden will have something to wear when he comes to visit next weekend. He’s used to 90 degree weather in Georgia, and we’re down in the 40’s overnight. I think he will be needing some wool.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to collapse on the couch and stare off into space for a while before the week starts up again. Hope you all had lovely and fiber-filled weekends, too!
