Howdy! I noticed the hits to


I noticed the hits to wormspit.com, and figured I'd pop in and see what's up! I haven't been knitting a lot lately, but I'm still a Man Who (occasionally) Knits...

If I can be of any help, please feel free to ask. I would be happy to mail you some silkworm eggs, although probably better in the spring when you've got leaves. I also run a Yahoo group called CatHerders, for folks who raise domestic as well as wild silk moths, if you want to join up there.

Hope that helps!
