Gotta make room in the fiber stash, as the boys are busy out in the pasture turning grass into wool!

      That’s what I was thinking. All the critters seemed to be getting along so nicely. Was a nice, serene evening. That black fleece belongs to Chone, my sweetest little guy. I It does seem to have some luster, and is a little bit “fluffier” than Edgar, who has more of a silky feel.

    it must feel very satisfying to look out and see your animals close by. Wonderful colours you have chosen Denise…..you must be excited about the thought of spinning your boys’ fleece!
    What kind of wheel do you spin on? It looks very pretty.

      It is so nice to have the critters nearby. I go out and visit with them a lot. It will be really neat to start working with their wool. I have two wheels, a Kromski Minstrel and an little old castle wheel that I picked up off craigslist last fall. It looks like things I’ve seen from central europe (maybe Serbia, Croatia).

    I WANT your chicken coop! OK ~ maybe just one LIKE yours…
    Your spinning is lovely and i love whatever that is that you’re knitting! Beautiful work.

    Enjoy the weekend!
