Baskets o' Thread


This week is known as the Twisting o' the Threads! Its a festive week of taking all those rinsed and dried skeins of dyed thread and twisting them in colorful hanks. This is followed by the joyous Labeling o' the Threads! where I attach a printed label to the threads to help identify them.
My friend, Frieda, recently coined a new term for these skeins and hanks of threads. She calls them "skanks".

Not my idea of "Skanks" but if it works for you. The colours are beautiful. It looks like a tropical feast in there.

You could almost eat those with a spoon! I am going to try doing some thread yet this summer.

Delightful as a new box of crayons! (What could be better for a lover of color?)

Lots of wonderful colors. I need to get my dye pots out, tired of using the store bough solids.
