From a knitter living in Hampden in the South Island of New Zealand.
Hi-saw your blog this morning and read through it and just wanted to write and tell you I really enjoyed it. I am a knitter in rural Wisconsin and have been playing at dying my own yarns for 1 1/2 years. This fall I have gotten some interesting results form golden rod, sumac,blood root and mexican sunflower. Most of the seeds that i grew for a dye garden were drown because of flooding we had this spring. So I picked alot of wild flowers in ditches by the side of the road to dye with. I am very impressed with your stranded knitting-thats what I like to knit also. Its fun to see half way around the world some one is doing what I ammary jo
Hi Mary Jo, Thanks for your encouraging words and good work making use of the roadside plants. I hesitate to pull out any weeds now, just in case . . .
