Cats and Fibre
My girl cat, Rowan, has fallen in love with my new fibre. It is Merino 64 and I bought 200g in Safflower from Freyalyn. Freyalyn is a new dyer I have discovered on Ravelry and she hand dyes some lovely colours. Rowan sniffed the fibre, then snuggled it for a moment, then stood guard while I was trying to get a good photo - the problem was, she wouldnt move far enough away so she is my fibre model for today. The merino was all wrapped up beautifully. I put it on a ball to get a photo which captured its variey of plums, red currants and deep copper gold. Sadly my camera wasnt up to the job, I think its time to get a modern digital camera.
