Hooray! Fall is finally here. The chrysanthemum display greeted me this morning at the supermarket. Recognize me in the picture?
Annual matzo ball production is underway in the kitchen. Here are the little fellas waiting to go into the boiling water.
And here they are cooked. Next into the chicken soup. That's for tomorrow. Shanah Tova, y"all.
In the Department of Fiber, I'm spinning up the intriguing bag of linen/wool blend I bought a few weeks ago at Gaspereau Valley Fibres. The linen has been chopped up into short pieces, and the 20% wool helps keep everything together. I plan to ply it. It's fun to spin and looks very hairy. Definitely not next-to-the-skin material. I think it will be a spectacular market bag; whether knitted or woven is still TBD.
Also in Fiber Dept.: studies continue in double twill. I'm now working out a version for shaft looms, with multiples of 8 shafts. Two warps, three wefts.
