For the past couple of weeks any visitors to my kitchen must have wondered why there was a bag which used to hold frozen chips sitting in the corner of my kitchen - its obvious really, I'm saving onions skins...!
I'm busy spinning a batch of yarn up and then I'm ready to dye it with the skins. See told you it was obvious!
The yarn I have already spun has come out well considering it was the worst fleece I have ever worked with.
I don't know if Oxford Down are always usually so horrible to card, but this fleece certainly was. I have given up on the rest of it, and will use it to line my hanging baskets in the Spring.
I have to admit I am wondering just how bad the smell of boiling onion skins will be - think I had better chose a mild day and have the kitchen door and window open.... the neighbours will love me!
