What I did on my spring vacation

I didn't do nearly as much dyeing as I wanted to, and didn't make up any new colorways - I spent the early part of the week, when the weather was nice, mostly skeining up yarn for stripes and other special effects, and then it started raining, which limits the amount of special effect dyeing I can do.  (I don't have as much space indoors as I would like to lay out the long skeins.)

I also discovered I don't have nearly as much sock yarn in stock as I thought.  Instead, I dyed mostly laceweight and DK yarns in some of my favorite colorways:  Oceanic, Warmth, Summer Splash, Deep, and Kermit.

I also used some of the indoor time to catch up on some carding.  There will be some beautiful romney batts in the shop soon - greens, blues, and purples.  They have some lanolin left in them, so for those who like to spin "in the grease" but also like color, these batts are for you!
