This is not a Blog Post

Not a fully formed one, anyway.

It was quite a week.
Edgar summed it up when he said:



Just glad to be through it.

a little spinning therapy helped-


dark Border Leicester and silvery Romney

And I didn’t finish these socks this week,, but I did wear them for the first time this weekend,,, so I figure they are fair game-


This Saturday was the WSU Country Living Expo down in Stanwood-
I took my camera, meaning to get a bunch of photos, but in hustle and bustle of the schedule I completely forgot to do that.

Went to a bunch of good classes, and the only photographic evidence I have of attendance is this shot of the lovely mohair I picked up from Wondering Creek Farm.


Couldn’t resist the silky, lustrous locks.

I permitted myself just a few ounces.

That’s better.

    Gorgeous picture of Edgar.
    Lovely yarn ~ I want to TOUCH it! I haven’t spun in SO long.
    I’m working on my second pair of socks!
    Beautiful Mohair locks!

    What are you going to do with them???

      Thanks Nancy-
      No real plan for the mohair yet- think I’m just going to use it for blending-it’ll go further that way.
      I’ve found that lately I’ve been getting a lot more spinning done than knitting. I suppose eventually the tide will turn and the needles will get busy again!

      Too funny. I hadn’t thought of that,, but it does have that kind of look. Though I might put him in Narnia instead of Middle Earth 🙂

    I am sorry you had such an awful week. Tom didn’t see you at the expo- I couldn’t make it because I was sick. I am glad though that you got your fiber fix, and Edgar provided some comic relief.

      Thanks- No, we didn’t run into Tom at the expo. Did get to meet Maureen (from the shetland listserve) though- and also saw Michelle of the CollieFarm blog.
      It was kind of neat to get a silly picture of Edgar- usually Chone is the one with all the funny antics.
