I'm out here drying dirty threads,getting some vitamin D, and making sure these clouds don't turn on me.

I fiddled with that cotton/silk twist and also remembered its provenance. Liz, I am pretty sure you had this sent to me all the way from AU or NZ? Please confirm. Thanks. I found the post about the greasy demise of that original hank. Be glad there were no pictures.

Lessons learned all over again. Temper that Hot Pink harder, harder I say. Keep it away from that insipid blue and haul deeper on the turquoise, it's a noble color.
Where is my A Little Chaos blue? The granddaddy of long lost Bonnie Blue. Sad.
And what the EFF were you yellows doing? Sleeping on the job?
The new black is nicely neutral!
Y'all must think I'm nuts but I talk to the colors while I'm working. Lots of swearing going on.
They are all languishing in the studio. Drying thread and cloth indoors it tedious but the rain has come to stay for a few days.
My absence caused a bit of disapproval. Now I am sharing a queen-sized bed with four cats.

Here's why I cut the day short and why nothing is going to get finished before Friday.
I may get lucky and the rain takes care of the first rinse or two.
Bonus for small batches handled in a studied rather than a frenzied manner - I was not physically or mentally wiped out.
It was also barely 80 by the time I wrapped it up.
I feel like I was cheating.

The opening day of baseball was usually the opening day for my dye season, but the weather conspires against me.
