We got our new energy efficient gas furnace installed

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on March 20, 2009

Finally got the gas heater installed and working.  We waited until every ounce of fuel oil was used in the storage tank then called the installers.  You have to pay to have fuel oil removed and disposed of.  The oil company won’t take it back because they don’t know if it’s clean anymore, so you have to use it all up or dispose of it as a haz waste.   We decided to use it all up.  we ran out of fuel before the new one was put in so we had 2 days without heat.  Good thing the weather cooperated with our plans.  The new heater is quiet, gets us a new tax break and best of all…. it’s shiny!  Next thing up on my agenda is to dig out my work space and dye up a storm!

Here’s some sock blanks that I sent over to Artisan Knitworks last week and photos of our sweet new heater.  I’ll be teaching a dye class for Artisan Knitworks in July and these are the display blanks for the class.   Here’s their website for you to take a look, they support local fiber artists and are located in Grosse Point, MI.  :)

Last night’s batch of dye

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on October 6, 2008

I stayed up last last night and dyed some yarn.  It turned out nice, and I just wanted to show it to someone.  :) thanks for understanding.

It makes me think of a green river on a topographic map, or green electricity.  Cool eh?
