I love that first burst of Spring growth, it's a colour of green that you just don't see at any other time of the year. The foliage is baby soft as it unfurls, a vibrant green, a true sign that Summer is on it's way.
A sign of longer days, of getting washing dried in mere hours (can't wait!) and cooling off at the beach.
So it's a bit of a surprise to find inspiration for dying wool amongst all that vibrant, warmth heralding green! Last week I spun some Merino and a Merino/Coopworth blend that I had been given in my "to spin" stash, I spun it thick and within a few hours it was done. I delved into my dying supplies, hoping to recreate some of the greens that are gracing my garden at the moment.
I was pleased with the results! A bit of a relief, my dying has always been a bit ht and miss, ahem.
I've got a "spring-like" project in mind to use it up. Watch this space .......
