Strawberries abounding

While I was pureeing strawberries today some beautiful, soft strawberry yarn appeared at my doorstep. With my thanks to Deb: a hank of Floating, from A Verb For Keeping Warm, a local dyer who uses only natural dyes; I’m curious to know if this was done in madder or cochineal, the two red sources they list. You can see how fast it got all wound up about it! (That’s an 11″ serving bowl, by the way.)

Sesame Street: “Do you know what’s going to happen next?” I am, sings Cat Stevens, on the road to find out. Follow the mellow brick, row’ed (or will be).

Love the color of that new yarn — yummy

(and I know what you mean about the baby proofing — I need to get to it to so our little boy can come and visit grandma!)

You were so excited to get it that you sat down and bawled . . . er . . . balled?
