Where did the time go?
Saturday was the Country Living Expo down in Stanwood. I went early to help with registration, so it was kind of a long day. But it’s always a lot of fun. and lots of fiber folks represented amongst the vendors and the classes offered. I learned about milking sheep from Gretchen, trimming hooves and shearing from Amy, plus raising fiber goats, making cider, and building organic soil fertility.
I forgot to take my camera, so you don’t get to see the silly angora wether getting his feet tended to. Oh well.
I went with only a couple of bucks in my pocket (to suppress fiber buying urges),, but managed to come away with a little bit of something to play with-
Just a few ounces of border leicester in rich jewel tones (since I don’ do much dying myself). The photo really doesn’t do the colors justice,, but you get the idea.
Was tempted by some targee, but I didn’t have enough cash on-hand to by it (see, I guess the strategy worked, eh?)
Being gone all yesterday of course meant that today it was mostly about playing catchup on housework. And so it goes.
I have to go play with my wool now.
