and i couldn't stop after i went through all the superwash. there was also a bag of BFL/tussah silk. Jim wants me to knit him the Sakori vest from Folk Vests (Interweave Press), so i dyed some of this fiber for the vest... and of course, spun some of it before it was even quite dry. i love it! next to see how it looks knitted up.
and i've also been watching things grow... unexpected things. i had a ginger root which started growing a nub/sprout thing as it lay neglected and unused on the counter. i put it in a pot of dirt and just barely covered it with dirt, leaving the sprouty thing exposed... and just look what's happening here. i don't suppose there's a remote chance of it growing up and living in this climate, but it's amusing me for the time being. also have a sweet potato suspended in a glass of water which has been growing and trying to take over the kitchen window sill. straight from The Little Shop of Horrors!!
