Moisture Matters!

Jen here!

This has been a wet week!

This is not a complaint, merely an observation!  After 2 years of drought, with our spring running dry, facing the choice of laundry OR showers, and 75% of our foundation plants dying...I will not complain about what has been falling out of the sky!  But, that clarified, we have had a little bit of everything!  We had ice, rain, fog, sleet, freezing rain, frost, slush, and lots of different snows.  I like to look at snow like I look at popcorn...its all very different!  This week we've had icy needles, little syrofoam balls, splaty slushy stuff, powdery stuff, and some big cookie decoration sized flakes that we all stood and admired in some slushy bootprints on our way to lunch!  I know...snow can be a major pain in the butt...'specially when it's the consistency of mashed potatoes and you can't walk or drive in it...but it is rather pretty if you take a closer look!  Then you can shovel the crap outta yer way!!!

All this moisture makes it hard to get the massive amounts of Yarn and Fiber Babs has been dyeing to DRY before we wind it up pretty!  There is wet stuff hanging everywhere.  There is dry stuff hanging everywhere.  There is wound stuff, and braided stuff and boxes of stuff, and piles of stuff, and...wait till y'all see this stuff!

We are in Pre-Show Mode so there is less than 2 or 3 feet you can walk in a straight line in the studio, and we hafta move 2 or 3 things to get to anything...the Rubix Cube Effect!  But we laugh and have a great time in the chaos...and dodge the precipitation in its many forms!  We haven't had raining frogs...but we named some fiber after the phenomenon!  We also have Glacier and Pond and Lake Michigan...It's been a Wet Week!!!
