Randomness Saturday


So today turned  into a random project day. SO was busy at work doing annoying must-be-done things, and I suddenly found myself beheading the marigolds - I've been meaning to grab their seeds since the grounds crew wacked them (grumble grumble grumble). Ended up mulching the tomato plant into that area too, no sense wasting it or it's dirt.

 

As I was dinking with the garden stuff in the garage, I remembered that I still had some fleece taking up shelf space there, so I thought I'd take a stab at dealing with that. Note: it is not recommended to wait 5+ years before washing a fleece. Just saying. This will probably take more than the one day, but I'm also taking the opportunity to try using the washer to make some of the job less tedious, so that's a double win - it's been in the garage so long, I clearly don't care if I mess some of it up. Also, that's about a full shelf of space we get back in the garage. And a lot of yarn to be spun for certain other fiber greek friends of mine to turn pretty colors :D  Despite the rain, I ran lunch over to Himself and I'm hanging around getting in his way for a bit before I go back and wrassle with dirty wet sheep bits. Man, I'm gonna smell like a farm for a week...

Oh, hey, guess what I *just* found out? You know how you were worried about the yarn I spun that you're dying possibly getting all felty? And you know how Monmouth caps actually are supposed to get felted (maybe you didn't know that, but they are), and that green one really didn't?

Dorset has natural superwash qualities.

*sigh* Well, good thing the next batch I'm spinning is supposed to be more sock weight. ::headdesk::
