right now:: mordanting at midnight

the time is now for natural dyeing around here. our crop of japanese indigo is perfect and the goldenrod is just starting to flower. i guess i don’t have to mention the tomatoes are rolling in so it is also canning time. sheesh. daylight hours are not enough, so i find myself scouring and mordanting yarn in the wee hours.
