This one starts with a weather update

First snowfall! That bunny from the other day had the right idea on colouring, because it snowed on the 12th and again on the 14th. The weather has been consistently under zero degrees too! WINTER IS HERE!!! :mrgreen:

First snowfall:
first snow fall!

And the same area after yesterdays snow and wind, as well as melting overnight from the building heat:

covered ground

Last weekend was a dyeing weekend 🙂 so I have some new yarns to share!!!! Since I decided to change my technique I’m having a lot more fun and enjoying the results much more. 😀

*note* I just finished watching Dr. Who Season 5 (first Matt Smith one), so I named these skeins using Whovian terms from that series…but! I didn’t dye the skeins with the names in mind (so it might be a loose interpretation) 😛

First yarn base: Sock weight 80% merino / 20% nylon

It has now been turned into a sock!
