I'm working on many different things at once today, aided by my jitters-inducing, home-brewed ice coffee, which makes one ten times more productive than usual (or at least puts one in a better mood while they are doing it). These are exciting times because I am starting to work on and plan out a really huge project for a show this fall! I need to formally introduce it, but not today. Just know that it's a concept I've been honing in my head for months now and thanks to the wonderful people at OVAC
, it's going to happen. More on this soon...
The logwood purple dye jar looked pretty effective about a week after I started it, but I just this afternoon opened it and rinsed the fiber. The yarn is a deep purple jewel tone, with some patches of lighter hues where it was twisted for the skein. I've got it drying on the porch now, and am fairly certain that it will make a beautiful shawl later in the year.
These little polypores above are for a new piece I'm working on to show next month. It's another new execution for me, and so far I'm happy with the progress.
Well, back to it! I hope you're having a relaxing and/or highly productive Saturday as well.
