I started a new scarf from Oddball Knitting by Barbara Albright a few days ago. I LOVE the way it looks so far. The wool yarn is dyed and spun by the gals of Spincycle Handspun Yarns. Make sure you check those gals out if you've not heard of them - they are COOL.
In the mail yesterday I also received our hard copy of the 2009 Native Seeds/SEARCH catalog, a seed source for dry lands. I think the universe felt my panic. I also remembered that a few years back we purchased a handy dandy southwest gardening book - Native Harvest Authentic Southwest Gardening. Funny how I forgot this and so much of the information I need is right there!
