So here is how I spent my week:
Nice dirty locks. Lots of mud but almost no VM or second cuts.
Ben helping, or supervising, or watching to see what the donkeys out front are doing.
A 2 oz. sample of those lovely curls.
Soaking away some of the mud in a warm bubble bath.
First batch of dyeing.
A good rinse.
And I have no picture of the dry fiber yet as we have a sort of sleety frozen rain falling now but you can trust me when I say I am tickled with the results.
