We were lucky with the weather today, beautiful sunshine and mild temperatures.
And enjoying the weather were those funny flowers. I say funny because I remember buying bulbs which were supposed to give many small pink flowers. Instead I have these ones.
They are huge and last only one day! They make nice pictures though!
On the crafty side, I have been in wool up to the neck! I mentioned earlier on that my mother brought me a huge bag of raw wool from Ireland. She scoured it too which was very nice as it smelled a lot.
That´s a picture of the raw wool
which I carded
and then spun
before dyeing it.
I wanted to dye it purple but it turned out a kind of denim. I am knitting it now and I can already say that it is going to be a very warm garment.
I wish you a nice Indian summer.
From Cold and Wintery Virginia!
