Mushrooms On My Own

We've had more rain this summer than I can remember since I've lived here. There are mushrooms everywhere! I have only rudimentary skills at identifying them, so I've tested some for dye possibilities. I was pretty sure when I found this that I'd hit on something:

I was right.

Oh, and these lovelies are now on their way to Girl Scouts in Bartlesville, OK. The troop is headed up by David's mom, and I gave them a little spinning demo a couple of months ago. They wanted spindles, so I ordered these from our local fiber artist, Barb, of Woolies Fiberworks. I think the girls will be thrilled.

Knitting on the Middle Fork

That's Middle Fork of the Salmon River. I'm on vacation. I've been mostly in Idaho until today, when we drove north into Montana. Where tomorrow I'm going to visit MOUNTAIN COLORS YARN in Corvallis! Really, they know I'm coming and everything.

To celebrate, I decided to start some socks with a skein of Bearfoot (Mountain Colors' sock yarn) from my extensive Mountain Colors stash.
