Yesterday was dedicated to the dyepot. I worked on some BFL to;
this time of year, bright yellows and oranges resonate against the oncoming darkness. I like the darkness, a little anyway; more time to knit, to think, to sit. But I love a rising sun and a bright day, hours and hours of it more. Balance is not my thing.

I worked on the ever-changing sequence of colors on the bulky merino. That yarns absorbs color and holds it; muted is the word. I hated everything I was doing until it came out of the dyepot. It will be interesting to knit it up and see how much color change I get.

Felting encouraged me to dye some more silk. Silk hankies are the antithesis of bulky merino; silk has light from within. Id argue if you told me different.

Situated on a hill overlooking the Haw River, Three Waters Farm looks out over a mixed terrain of fields, woods, and water in the piedmont of North Carolina. We moved here in 1989 with the intent to raise our family on a working homestead. Initially we produced a mix of organic vegetables, cut flowers, goat cheese, and baked goods at the Carrboro Farmers' Market.
Since 1997, we have focused on making products from our sheep's wool and our goat's milk. We produce a variety of hand-painted yarns, and spinning fibers, and from our goat's milk, we make Goat's Milk True-soap, using our own special recipe.
