School is over until the end of June,, the 2.5 cm growth on my thyroid isn't cancer, and things are calming down, but I've spent the last two weeks showing my father in law, visiting from Scotland, around the wilds of Idaho. He's had a great visit, but heads home today and we are back to the same old same old.
While Dad was here we went to a local SCA event here in our barony, run by my awesome hubby. The event was brewing themed, and I attended a neat class on water chemistry in brewing. We enjoyed watching the rapier and heavy championships and showing his dad our fun hobby. There was a great barbecue dinner and we had lots of locals coming by to watch and ask questions.
As far as SCA projects go, just about everything is stalled at this point. Loom is still awaiting its new part. I haven't done any work on my cotte lately, and I haven't even mended any garb in preparation for Celtic Revolt in An Tir this coming weekend.
I did spin a pretty skein of smooshy merino knitting yarn for my friend who is making the loom part. I love the barter system. Below is a pic of the wool, which I dyed myself using food dyes. It was pretty badly felted, so I carded it before spinning and spun long-draw, relatively low-twist singles plied into a nice round 2-ply. The yarn is still damp from its soak, but I'll grab a photo when it's dry.
