Been busy this week attending to holiday rituals-
Even managed to get some cards written out and addressed this morning. So I’m calling that a win.
And in the spaces in-between, I of course squeezed in some wool work
My Felix yarn (white), while a bit under-spun, is so soft and squishy. Will have to find just the right special something to make out of it.
I’m just past the waist of the unspun sweater project, and everything seems to be going pretty smoothly- though the creamy natural color wool isn’t very forgiving of my occasional inconsistencies in thickness. Feel like I’m getting better at working with the roving- I guess the sweater will show the arc of my skill-building! Maybe I’ll really have it down by the time I’m doing the sleeves 🙂
And though I’ve never met Alice, the sheep from whom this fleece was sheared, I’m starting to feel like I know her. Wonder if I could recognize her out of a lineup just based on her wool. I’ve heard that she’s quite a character. Just diz’d some more of her wool into roving to keep the sweater project moving along-
I’ll sign off for now with a picture of the pasture gang- snapped just after they finished up an afternoon treat (alfalfa pellets)
and here’s Esther going back just to make sure she didn’t miss any bits
muncha muncha muncha 🙂
