I am so glad to be home for a stretch after a super busy spring show season. I went to 9 shows in 15 weeks and the last 5 were consecutive weeks with only a day or two home between each. To make it more crazy I usually had some production work to do when I was home. I am still working on dyeing more yarn, including 5 new colors. I am fitting that in as I can between home/family stuff. Here’s a few pictures of what I have in the works in that respect.
So, the dyes are in the process of being mixed when I have an hour or two here and there to spend in my studio. The yarn is finally all here and now I just need a few days of good weather and no other critical tasks that need my attention so that I can get it all done. I had to take one of the guinea pigs to the vet yesterday and I have to take my father to an eye procedure tomorrow. Hopefully that will be it for awhile.
So the other thing I was planning to share was my Firenze sweater progress. I am working on the plain body section now after finishing the cabled yoke and dividing the sleeves. Progress is much faster so I hope to have it done by the next show, but that is in mid July so I’m not sure if that is a realistic goal.
I’ll close for now. I’m going to try and get the last bit of color mixing done this afternoon so I can possibly get the dyeing done over the weekend. Talk to you again soon!
