Pamala Weber has teamed up with Tinderbox Editions to produce a book vibrant with the colors of the north: walnut, goldenrod, tansy, sumac. Slow Color: A Practical Guide to Natural Dyeing in the North has come from Pamala’s many years as a fiber artist and educator: it is a how-to book that gives readers the recipes they need to succeed in growing a dye garden, finding plants to use in dye recipes, a guide to a calendar year’s worth of dye projects, and even a few patterns to make beautiful objects using your hand-dyed fiber.
It’s that time again!
Plan to attend KNIT MICHIGAN 2011!

A woman is knitting as she drives (which is totally unsafe, and I don’t advocate it). Pretty soon, her speed has crept all the way up to 95 mph–and she passes a parked police car. The car gives chase. Officer Bob turns on his siren, but the woman, oblivious, doesn’t notice him. Finally, he pulls up alongside her car and yells, “Pull over! PULL OVER!”
She looks at him, looks at her knitting, and yells–
“NO! It’s a CARDIGAN!”
Why was the sheep arrested on the freeway?
For doing an illegal ewe-turn.
In through the front door
Around the back
Out through the window
And off jumps jack.
Under the fence
Catch the sheep
Back we come
Off we leap
Down through the bunny hole,
Around the big tree,
Up pops the bunny,
And off goes she!
