Born on New Year’s Eve…

…of 2 socks and a bit of embroidery floss

sadhanas monkey

is the first monkey of the year, outfitted in the first sweater of the year!
Also my first attempt at duplicate stitch for the snowflake/flower-

No name yet for this little cutie yet. I’ll leave that to the little girl he’s headed to in NY.

Other woolly developments include last week’s colorful batts becoming yarn,


and doing a bunch of carding and combing in preparation for the WSU Country Living Expo in a few weeks!
I always like to have a variety of wools available for people to play with.

It’s a great way to spend a day-talking spinning wheels with people and sharing the joy of wool processing.

(And there is usually at least one vendor there with dyed kid mohair, which I find utterly irresistible.)

Have a great week-
