7.93 inches of rain so far this month. 2.39 of that today alone
I’m very thankful that the sheep and chickens have a comfy shed to hang out in. I went out and got some more straw this afternoon so they have fresh bedding. Everything gets mucky fast when it’s so wet out there.
Inside, I made some progress today on prep for my Expo zoom class. I shot a set of short videos documenting the washing of a batch of fleece. Hoping that The Man can help me edit it into a useful little demo for the class.
I’m really happy with how the Jacob fleece from down the road is washing up. Very soft and fluffy-
Next up, carding! hand carding, drum carding, flick carding. options abound—
And, I am excited to report that I just cast off the back of the Griff Traveling Stitches vest!
I think tiny Gus is kind of jealous. I might need to make one for him one as well. It would look super cute on him. 🙂
So now it’s time for blocking. Blocking and assembling, before I can work on the neckline. I am kind of anxious to see how my v-neck/shawl collar hybrid is going to play out. Looks like I’m doing ok on yarn yardage, so that’s a relief. Enough left for a nice substantial collar.
Alrighty folks. Hope you and yours are all staying dry and safe as the waters continue to rise.
So glad you are not flooded. It looks like we might survey this one. Love photos of Gus. He would look great in a Griff vest! Stay dry.
thank-yeah, me too. really glad that your sandbagging held and you didn’t need to evacuate. what a relief, eh? it would be fun to make a doggie version of this sweater- I might start doing some sketches….
