I’m keeping up fairly well with my TdF challenge, despite lots of distractions and scheduling conflicts. Duchess’s fleece is all spun and washed, and I finished the first skein of Lady today.
Duchess. Actually the yarn is a very dark brown/black, my camera for some reason kept bleaching out the color.
Lady. I pushed random buttons on the camera until the colors looked better, so this is fairly accurate.
I also finally got around to washing Barney’s fleece. I had to, because I need the bag it was in. Barney needs to be sheared again as soon as he dries off from the rain. I have a feeling I’m going to be kept pretty busy processing wool between Barney and the new Shetland I’m getting.
Speaking of which, the new little Shetland guy should be here next week! I’m still making up my mind whether to put him in with the girls or put him and Neo off together by themselves so they can bash each other silly without bothering everyone else. Neo really needs to get his big self weaned and some manners knocked into him.
All this wool stuff going on in the house is driving Watcher crazy. He’s quite put out that I won’t let him
eat play with all those wonderful clouds of brown wool spread out for the taking.
“I’m not speaking to you. You’re a mean mommy who won’t let me have any fun. I’m just going to sit here and sigh dramatically every few minutes.”
Between the puppy and the lambs there are way too many adolescents around here. The angst in the air is almost palpable.
