Home from the Fair

I didn’t make it up there this year, but I did send a couple things in for the Wool Show

And I’m pleased to report that they both made a fine showing.

Spike’s two ply skein and the stashbuster raglan both had lots of fun and received high marks, but I’m glad to have them back home again.

In other news, I think I’ve taken my little weaving project as far as I can go on this loom setup.

It’s about 19 inches now. Hopefully long enough for me to fold into a little handbag or something. Will see what it looks like once I figure out how to get it off the loom!

And the boys got pedicures again today (still trimming and treating with copper napthenate about every three weeks). I made it up to them with some pea vines from the poor neglected garden. It’s mostly been a chicken playground this year. Figured the boys can help me get a start on the cleanup!

I’ve got all of Edgar’s summer fleece washed now- today was a great day for drying al fresco in the cherry tree-

so I hung out some Frank/Felix yarn, too!

Nothing like wool in the breeze. 🙂

Have a great week!

      thanks. I’m pretty psyched about how this little sample worked out. Think I could really get into this weaving thing…
