It’s been too hot to do much this week, and I have nothing interesting to talk about.

Instead have some weld

and the wool I dyed wiith it

It’s not the most interesting yellow, but it was free. I sometimes get quite sulky when I see people harvesting free weld on the dyeing groups, because it never seems to grow round here, so I feel like I’m missing out. Then last week I was driving to my mum’s and there was a huge patch of it by the A66 near West Auckland, so I nabbed some. It made the van smell decidedly agricultural all the way home, but it was worth it for free yellow.

I shall endeavour to be more interesting next week.

  1. I am sure you will succeed!

  2. It’s interesting that the yellow isn’t very interesting: I got a very similar colour the other day, although the weld is growing like the devil at the moment (North Wales). The colour was slightly cheerier after adding common salt – but not much.
