Who needs real chocolate when you can work with this yarn?
[Ok, that's a joke for sure since chocolate makes up 3 of the 4 basic food groups.]
This is another scarf started with the amazing Blue Heron yarn in the color "Tapestry." Although I don't know why they call it that, since it's obviously chocolate in color. It's really luscious. So many colors in this dye lot; I'll post a picture as it grows enough to see more of it. Looks like milk chocolate and dark chocolate to me...
Here's another thing I got done today, in between all the other non-art related tasks I had to do:
Yes, that's a grand total of 212 skeins of wool rug yarn waiting to be dyed, All neatly stored now at my studio. It was cool enough today to get to the studio, so not only did I get this done--I'd been wanting to do it for a while--but I also managed to get a small amount of rug hooking done. Not enough to show any difference so I didn't bother to phtograph the rug..
I had hoped to start another zendala today, but there just wasn't time.
A day with time for knitting, for rug yarn, and for rug hooking. What's not to love?
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
