Steaming carnation

This parcel arrived yesterday: Wool from old German Democratic Republic stocks. The label says "VEB" (people's own factory) "Wollgarnfabrik - Karl-Marx-Stadt". It is fine machine knitting wool, a big skein of 100g, very good to be used for weaving or as crewel wool -- just tried it -- and I bought it for less than 1 $. I started a crewel embroidery: A fresh blue-dyed and still hot and steaming carnation.
