Three Bags Full

Finished up the last three guys this weekend!

It all went pretty smoothly,, but my back and legs are really shot.

Here is Griff making his wool donation-

(And Edgar making sure that Griff doesn’t get all the attention.)

That wasn’t so bad, right guys?

Here are some samples from the harvest:

All the boys

Clockwise from bottom left: Griff, Chone, Edgar, Felix/Frank (they are pretty much the same, and got jumbled together)

Neat, eh? I was thinking that Griff and Edgar were pretty much the same color, but it turns out that underneath, Griff is a much more walnuty-smokey brown, where Edgar is a moreĀ  reddish tone. Griffs is also a bit shorter and crimpier, where Edgar’s is more wavy. Hurray for variety!

I combed up a little bit of Felix and Chone this afternoon.

I’m mighty anxious to take this for a test spin,, but there are just not enough hours in the weekend.
