Fellow natural dye enthusiast and dye farmer, Birdsong Sundstrom, is promoting her Natural Dye CSA with a contest! Grand prize: An indigo-dyed pair of socks, made on her antique circular sock knitting machine. Visit her website for details.
Second prize is a skein of local Romney yarn, which Birdsong dyed with pokeberry. I have a skein of her beautiful pokeberry-dyed yarn in my stash, but haven’t yet decided what to knit with it. I had better get busy with more knitting before I run out of space for my ever-growing collection of natural dyed yarns!
Meanwhile, I the artichoke plant in my community garden plot is enormous, so I am planning on brewing up a batch of dye with the leaves, and drying some for future use. More on that later.
