As social distancing restrictions ease in my province, I can't help but worry our personal social distancing is just at the beginning. Living with a family member who is immune suppressed and having several co-mobility factors myself, I suspect it will be months if not years before we can re-join society. But it's not too bad with five acres and a house full of introverts. We've been keeping busy.
One of the things I set out to learn during lockdown is dyeing with acid dyes. I bought a couple of kits from Ashford where 10g of dye is enough to colour 1-kilo of fibre! With two years of fibre saved up for the local mill, which closed its doors last fall :( , I have a lot of wool (and alpaca, and llama, and silk, and...) to practice on. It's been a massive amount of fun, and I feel I'm only just scratching the surface of what is possible with this fantastic art.
