Yarn Along

Joining  in again with Ginny to share what I am knitting and reading.  I am casting on some of the yarn I spun last week to make gnome hat from the book, More last minute knitted gifts. 
The book is a new field guide that will aid us in our spring foraging for mushrooms.  We are pretty good at foraging for morel mushrooms, but I am hoping to expand our foraging to different types of mushrooms.

The yarn is such a pretty color. Did you dye it yourself?

I have always wanted to collect mushrooms, but have been afraid of getting the wrong ones. Is it really hard?

Hi, Just stopping by from the Yarn Along. I never thought about actually looking for mushrooms to eat...it sounds interesting, though - I'm always open to trying new things!

Rebecca no I did not dye it, I did spin it though:)

Tracey, when you have confidence with one, such as Morels, it is not hard.

Maria, thanks for stopping by.

Wow...I never thought of collecting mushrooms.

I have also wanted to forage for mushrooms but I am not at all confident. The only foraging I have done is for purslane--that one I can identify but I am insecure about others. This book looks really interesting.
