Natural Dye Workshop with Cheryl Kolander

I got a flier that there's going to be a natural dye workshop for THREE DAYS! in Portland in November. If you're interested in natural dyes, you should look into this! Cheryl Kolander is the author of "A Silkworker's Notebook", "Hemp! for Textile Artists" and "Brilliant Colours with Natural Dyes". The workshop is November 20-22 and will include indigo and surface design as well as immersion dyeing. Check out all the information at or email her at dyer @ .

Looks like a great opportunity!

Rabbit rabbit!

A million years ago, I knew someone who would always say "rabbit rabbit!" on the first day of the month. According to her, doing this would get her good luck for the rest of the month if she said it to you before you said it to her. Anybody know where this bit of lore comes from? Anybody else every heard it? Ever said it to everyone you meet on the 1st day of the month?

Funny things we do.... Can I just wish good luck to everyone, every day?

And would saying "knit knit" mean we get happy knitting all month?
