Happy Thursday,another warm day, some sun, some grey, some blue sky with cotton wool clouds.
The rain has battered the garden but it will all recover, if only partially.
The Pulse yarn has been wound into cakes and I now have to decide what it will become.
The skeins, dry and ready to wind.
Three luscious cakes ready to go. I am calling these Gower, as they remind me of the colours in the marshes there.
I finished the third pair of short socks for the SO, he picked the main colour and the heels and toes solid.
This is a man whose colour palette of choice was dark grey, light grey, mid grey, black and white with mid blue denim for a change.
I am amazed, and delighted, at his new adventurous dive into the world of colour.
He dyed the Pulse yarn while I watched, wide eyed.
I watched Crafty Mandy's podcast this morning, Stitching for Sanity. I have "volunteered" to dye a skein of yarn in pink and a soft mustardy yellow for her.
I am more than happy to do so, after all she dyed the goldfish yarn for me.
The yarn and dyes are on their way and I look forward to some experimenting.
Of course I will share as I fall (run like the wind) further down this particular rabbit hole.
I have a maslin pan of chopped up rhubarb waiting to be turned into jam, it needs to sit in the sugar for a while to draw some of the water content.
I have to shop later, the only things in the fruit bowl are 3 grapefruit and 4 small bananas, scheduled to become a Black Banana Cake mmmmm.
Rufus is enjoying his morning walk, and so am I. We will continue this after his owners cast is removed, we had a little chat and it is mutually agreeable.
Now I am off to stir up the rhubarb and sort out a bit of lunch.
