Shhh... they are sleeping

Not much going on here.  Well, that's not true. There's lots going on, just not much to write about.  What there is worth sharing is mostly food related.

But here's an exciting thing.

They are sleeping now.  Live silk moths inside their beautiful cocoons.  When they wake up in the spring, they will flap their wings, find a mate and make lots of little eggs, which will hatch and eat and grow... and on and on.

But they are not your usual silk worm.  Oh no.  These are Polyphemus silkmoths.  A species that grows wild around here.

We are going to have a lot of fun together.

In other news, spinning lots.  Met an absolutely lovely person who asked me to spin some yarn for her.  It's just the project I needed to get my spinning mojo going again.
