….. caught in a skein of organic merino!
Yes, it’s that time of year once again. The countryside is covered with a yellow haze of blooming snakeweed (a.k.a. rubberbush).
So headed out yesterday morning to gather a bag full of blossoms.
Then into a pot they went….
A bit of boiling, and straining, then added the pre-mordanted (alum and creme of tartar) merino.
And here is the dried skein….. a lovely yellow!
And here is the sweater my sister-in-law knit for Ellie out of this yarn!! Isn’t it lovely!?!?
