Warmth in Winter

While the storm raged yesterday, I sat the by the woodstove and spun two new yarns in colours as deep and saturated and warm as it was cold and windy and snowy outside.




Both are made from handpainted targhee fleece from Mountain Colors, in the same colourway, actually. The top is a two-ply, light DK weight, 406 yds, and the bottom image is of a single ply, thick and thin, 300 yds.

Two loaves of bread came out of the oven and a new mattress was delivered. It also delivered a better back for me and allowed the back-killing mattress to move into our new guest room. There have been many jokes about how it is a sure way to keep guests from overstaying. But really, it takes a good month for the effects to kick-in so don't worry. Plus, the guest room has the best heat in the house so it is actually quite cozy and comfortable down there. I promise.

Oh all right, you've convinced me. I'll be by soon for a bed and some bread and chat by the fire while we knit up some dreams or spin some trouble making!
