Thinking green

I guess without realizing it, I'm looking for spring already. After reading Susan's post last night, with those too cute knitted chickens pictured on the green grass (from last summer) and her comment on how wonderful the grass looked, I decided to throw some roving into the turkey roaster and dye up some green fiber. I turned the roaster off before going to bed and couldn't wait to drain the exhaust water this morning. I hung it out on the outside line to drip, as I always do and the next time I checked, there were icicles hanging from it! I think that means it won't be spring for quite a while. It's now drying on the sunroom floor and I can't wait for it to dry enough to spin some into bright green yarn.
Just a gratuitous picture (or two) of Miss Pippi, taken in the barn this morning. You can see that she is really growing.

Think green thoughts today!
