Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

A fuzzy cat and nine tail growing among his friends. I wonder if any of my spinning friends know if fabric could be spun from this?

Moving onto the island that we will be walking around, we can see that the sun has been doing a good job of getting rid of some of the snow in the pathway. The more sheltered areas of the trail have more snow on them still but the walking is good.

Shel and I moving along through the trees.

Some of the older trees were sporting fungi growth. So many different shapes and sizes grow here.

Another sweeping view of a section of Goose Creek Marsh; and at the end of your long trek (approx. 1 mile 'round the island), a lovely bench in the midst of a peaceful forest on which you may rest your body and refresh your spirit. But of course, it might be best to wait for a slightly warmer day and after the sun has melted away the snow on the seat there.

Hope you enjoyed your little walking tour with us.

Beautiful pictures! Looks like you had an enjoyable day on your hike.

I believe that cat tail can be spun, I havent tried it myself. I have a friend that can spin dryer lint, so I reason that if you can spin that, you can spin anything that sits still long enough!

I think you could probably spin cat tail fuzz; don't know what the yarn would be like. Some people around here have played with milkweed.

It was just a thought that crossed my mind Girls, thanks. Guess it's just as well that I don't own a spinning wheel. Or if I remember correctly don't some of you actually spin using just a spindle?
