Color to the Rescue
Our Kentucky landscape gets a bit blah this time of year- above is a picture I took from the studio window on Monday....
And then yesterday....The snow always seems to brighten the hills and my mood, but it's easy to see why I want to work with bright colors at these times. Here's some of the roving that I just had processed at Ohio Valley, already hand-dyed, and the resulting handspun yarn.
Valentine colors seem to be attracting me right now, I wonder why?
I've even nearly finished a new hat knit with handspun from last week's batch of roving.
The studio is absolutely bursting with brightness. And that doesn't even include the valentine fabric and felt surprises.... more on those to come.
