Here is what I ended up doing with the beet dyed wool. I plied it with a natural wool to come up with Peppermint. It looks like a peppermint twist to me. It is still on the skeiner but will come off today and get set. The color is set with vinegar and heat.
There will be wooly balls at the market tomorrow. I’m spinning like a mad-woman today to see what I can come up with for market as well. I apparently have been slacking this last week. Either that or time sped up. I’m not sure which it was. Let’s pretend that time sped up and I wasn’t doing other things like canning tomatoes or anything like that. At least all my onions are harvested and curing so that is one chore out-of-the-way. Tomatoes and tomatillos are in queue but they are just going to have to stay there for a day or two. I have carrots that are getting bigger and bigger that need harvested and put up too. At least they keep well in the ground. I can slack on them for a bit and pay attention to my wool.
I’d better go get the peppermint set and get spinning.
