Projects in hand-spinning, knitting and weaving. (No, it's not about the fiber you eat.) Because knitting is in my genes...spinning my own yarn is heaven on earth...you have to be warped to weave...I have more fiber related pursuits than good sense and absolutely no excuse ever to be bored.

Gotta Love Those Cochineal Bugs!
Several ladies from the Red River Fiber Arts came out to my house today and we played around with a couple of dye pots. The tea dyed yarn is lovely, but the cochineal is breathtaking! Without mordant! I will post more photos when the rest of the yarn has been washed. I finished up with a soak in Eucalan.
