i love a spring snow!!!! sorry for those of you with fruit trees. i hope your blossoms weren't damaged. my blog doesn't show it but i have been fibery lately. last thursday rhodie and i decided to spin at our LYS as we can never make it to spinning saturday nor can we ever make it to one of the many knit nites that occur in town. but thursdays are different. we are both there all day while our kids are in their once a week set of classes. the hum drum of errands was delightfully remedied with some spinning mixed in.
rhodie is on the left and barbara sue stopped by-she was so excited she ran home and got her wheel. there was a class happening and others knitting on the couch. it was torture to drag myself away for dreaded grocery shopping. bj was there and she shared and taught us many things! thanks bj! i started this beautiful BFL roving called "mosswood."i wish i had dyed this. this a miss babs creation-lovely!!!! i want to wrap myself in it!
i'm doing a trade with a dear old friend from minneapolis-some of her black and white photos of horses for some hand knit black hiking socks. sorry cynthia! another skein bites the dust: thanks BLUE!!!!!!who me? he keeps scraping the pigment off his nose...does anyone have any suggestions about this? i'm concerned. it grows back then he scrapes it off again. weird!!
our family decorates eggs on the spring equinox instead of easter. it sure snuck up on me. i was totally unprepared this year. unable to get to town i called all tiny markets in the vicinity looking for egg dye-nada, nothing, phooey!
getting resourceful i used what little we had at home:
tumeric for yellow. i had an old squishy beet hiding in the back of the fridge for pink. and blue food coloring from a camping water purifier kit(??????) check it out:we did some creative mixing as well to make new colors-we had the primaries-ha! and the use of crayons as well. here's this year's spring altar! happy spring everyone!!!
