Items of Note

I have finished my Level 1 Master Spinner workbook/project. Here is an item from it:
Coreopsis dye with alum mordant. Sumac dyed decoration w. more coreopsis.
It is knitted with homespun marled wool yarn made from 2 plies of Clun Forest & a single of dark grey Romney. I am so happy to have my project finished and on it's way to my teacher for marking. I will have some free time to get back to weaving. 
This is what I did for 2 hours after I mailed it.

My new dye garden has some dye plants in it now too - alkanet, madder, dyer's broom, golden marguerite. More later.
