And I find dyeing 4 kg in a day hard work.


I spent an hour sat outside in the garden this afternoon, counting the bumble bees for a survey. The bees have made a nest behind the wall of the pond. It's a rigid plastic pond and where the clay earth has shrunk away, they have built a nest, this is at least the third year they've been down there. I've planted more bee friendly plants for them, but they seem to prefer the buttercups that I'm desperately trying to get rid of. No veggies, far too many slugs and snails.


No way am I working that hard over more than one day at a time! Sounds very satisfying, though, and does this mean that you're looking at the lace jacket pattern from The Knitter? Looking forward to that - no pressure!
