What's this? Blackberry and apple pie in the making? No, it's some neutral-coloured fleece being dyed 'cerise'. (Along with bits of my kitchen and bathroom.) I have a very special project in mind - something I've wanted to knit for a long time but never found the right yarn. Spinning up my own seems to be very apt for the project.
It's interesting how the tips of the locks have taken the dye best, and the animal end remains much lighter. I'll start to spin this up when it's dried out a bit, and will also post some news of my hat (first handspun project) very shortly.
