Cotton Picker

It's just about harvest time in Cowley County. All the bolls have opened and the cotton fluffs out in big clusters. Cotton is my favorite fiber to card, spin and dye. It's mesmerizing to stand next to a field of white as I dream about all the things I could make out of it. Soon the machines will be out harvesting and white fuzz will line all of the ditches like a blanket of snow.
