Well, I've had a busy week, how bout you? There's been washing, picking and carding, spinning and knitting.
The first of the Olympic Medals socks is finished.
Took 1/2 day of vacation today as I'm heading off to White Cloud with Paula, Heather and Erica. There will be sheep shorn at about 3pm. Making a short stop at Hillside Jacobs to see he has any more Jacob or Shetland fleece that we can't live without then on to Counting Sheep Farm. Can't wait to get there and say hey to Rachael and hopefully Evelyn.
Gary at Hillside tells me he still has a few light weight fleeces that he'd like to sell. He's very reasonable and the Jacob is soft and colorful.
LittleDog mentioned the other day that he hadn't had any blog time lately so I'll share his play time with you from the other night. We could use a few laughs around here.
I hope you and your families are all safe and dry with a roof over your head. It's been pretty scary around the USA and I know that we've spent our fair share of time worrying about loved ones in the path of destruction in the south. Our son spent some time huddled in a ballroom with hundreds of folks in a hotel in Atlanta while the storms passed in the middle of the night. We have family in Mobile, Birmingham, Jasper and Cordova, Alabama. So far, with what little communication we can get through down there almost everyone is accounted for. One Uncle has not been heard from yet but I'm sure as soon as someone knows something about him they'll let us know. Tense times for sure. Be safe and enjoy some fiber this weekend.
