Fall is finally here!

        I love the fall. What a beautiful bright orange cluster of berries.

                           The large bush is just loaded with color.

On the rughooking front, I decided to hook up a wool crow. I dyed the wool in a variety of blacks, deep blues, greys, and a smidge of burgundy. He is listed at http://www.giffordables.etsy.com/ , just in time for the fall season.

 I have been washing and dyeing alot of fleece, from a wide range of breeds. I just finished dyeing, and carding up these sparkly wool batts. I dyed masham longwool in a variety of red, wine, and deep burgundy. I topped them off with some sparkly Ruby red angelina.  I based these batts on my favorite Enchanted Forest in the Wizard of Oz .-  Dorothy's Enchanted Apples. Will hit the shop soon.

 More on the dyeing front is some 2-ply light fingering wt. yarn that I spun, and dyed.....

Took a pinch of this, and dab of that, and I came up with this Electric Boogaloo, Chartreuse shade. I'm going to start a pair of socks with this, and will post pic's soon.

                   Well... it's a rainy day here, and I'm just about done with the work for the day.

               Time to make a nice hot cuppa tea, and maybe cast-on for a pair of Electric green socks.

              Hope you all take a little time to enjoy the day!
