I am very excited to finally be sharing this project with all of you. It’s been a long time in the making, and longer time in me finding my way back to the dyepots for color, but the first (of hopefully many) round of it is here! Montana Millspun Suffolk Sock Yarns!
These past few have definitely not been what anyone expected. I’m looking forward to 2022 with the same things I plan out for myself every year - more knits, the learning of new things, and lots more time spent wandering the woods for dye plants and with my hands in the wool. A wrap up of my visit to the coast, My Mama, and my final finish of 2021!
Hello to all of you, blog readers, email list subscribers, fellow natural wool and natural dyeing enthusiasts! What a very strange year this has been. No need for details there, suffice to say its been rough. And yet when my spouse creature and I found ourselves jumping into working as artists as regular work fell out from under us at the beginning of lock down you all were there to help. I can’t begin to express my gratitude, every comment on social media, every skein of yarn or knit good sent out to one of you, has kept our little woodland household going.
We're definitely in the waning time of year again. Here up in Northwestern Montana there's been a cold snap that's left us with a good layer of snow and temperatures down in the single digits. Brr! With the early onset of winter I've been appreciating my woolen wardrobe all the more, the socks in particular are key to my coziness when the weather turns.
