New Year's Greetings!
I've been spending a lot of time spinning.
The Shepherd wants another sweater vest from his sheep's yarn - This is "Donna"
The roving was done for us by Evergreen Fibers in Woodinville - He did a really nice job.
We went to brunch at our friend Nancy's farm to celebrate New Years - Lots of good music, good food and good friends. I had finished two bobbins of "Donna" so I took my spinning wheel and started plying it. I'll take a picture of it when I get it skeined up.
This is some CVM/Romeldale yarn that I spun up last month -
"Kathy Green Roving" - She uses a high micron count fiber and through a process of combing, dying & carding comes up with a yummy, easy to spin fiber. Some of my favorite!
The kids have been spending a lot of time snoozing. They are such funny & affectionate kitties.
Til next time - Happy New Year from everyone here on the farm!
