Wool drying on the guest-house/studio porch - trio of dye/roasters - bakers' rack with dyed locks
Sort, wash, dry or dye, skein, weigh, tag and pack was repeated in an endless loop. Three roasters and three huge dye pots simmered most of the day. The washing machine ran non-stop. Soon bags of wool and skeins of roving began to pile up everywhere: in the house, in the barn, in the guest house, in the car, and - eventually - in the trailer.
After making reams of lists and piles of maps and directions, we headed off.
This should have been a clue that we weren't as big as we thought we were.
