Is it Spring yet?

Last month, record-breaking snow.  This month, so far, rain rain rain!  But as that snow was getting washed away, the tips of the first spring flowers emerged.  Another sign of spring are these baby lambs whose picture I took last week when I helped my friend Deb with shearing at Forevermore Farm:

I came away with fleece, of course, which will eventually get cleaned and carded and show up in my shop.  But in the meantime, thoughts of spring have been inspiring my dyepots, which have been busy lately with new colors of wool top:

Superwash merino:

and Bluefaced Leicester top:

Also dyed, and premiering this weekend at the Homespun Yarn Party are kettle-dyed spring colors of Falklands top, and lustrous, deliciously soft shades of mulberry silk top! 

Speaking of which… if you’re in the VA/MD/DC area, don’t miss out on a great chance to visit my shop, and 39 other indie spinners/dyers/fiberistas this weekend in Savage Maryland, at the Homespun Yarn Party.  Date/time is Sunday March 21, 12 – 5 p.m.  More details and directions to be found here: http://homespunyarnparty.blogspot.com/

    Love those spotted lambs! The intensity of colour in that superwash merino is lovely too.
