or " Flashback to the Sixties" - which is what my sister says it should be named.

this is knit on US 10.l5 needles - using 5 skeins (100 yds each) of hand-dyed and hand-spun wool from The Merry Little Lamb - who
coerced obligingly sold them to me on Columbus Day at the Connecticut Renaissance Festival in Hebron, CT. The ladies also gave me a seat in the shade; performed as an audience for my singing for about two hours; functioned as a swift so I could wind the first skein, and allowed me to knit at their booth.
This was after the
forced talked me into returning to my vehicle for my checkbook so I could buy the yarn. I'd seen it last year - couldn't pass it up two years in a row, right? Of course, right!
Three skeins of various shades of madder , then two skeins of Brazilwood w/ vinager. The last 50 yards or so of the Brazilwood I included a strand of jaegerspun maine line Burgandy heather along with it (2/14 thickness - I think) ; then the final band is the burgandy heather doublestranded to match the thickness of the handspun from The Merry Little Lamb.
BTW - drop spindle was being demoed by a guy.
