Beans: more than just a musical fruit

Black turtle beans, anyway. They make good eating, and beautiful yarn, too.

Yes, I said yarn.

Those two hanks of newly dyed yarn I was talking about yesterday? Dyed with black bean juice. I was planning to show them to you today, but unfortunately by the time I finished untangling the second one, it was dark outside. Not conducive to decent photos.

But don't go running away. I've got a few pics to whet your appetite.

13 hours

25 hours

37 hours

Details tomorrow -- including pics of at least two of the four skeins in that dye pot! (Two are still "cooking".)
