Sheep & Wool Spoils

Roving Around. Here we have some Blue Moon Fiber Arts Super Merino in Hot Flash. The Other Wad is also BMFA but Merino & Kid Mohair, also in Hot Flash. We thought they were both the Super Merino and had an Oops moment when we realized they were different. Lord Knows what these will become and truthfully it doesn’t matter. It is just fun to use my Turkish Drop Spindle and some awesomely dyed roving.

Blue is normally not my color, but this is such a beautiful color that I found it hard to resist. Especially when it is Three Waters Farm Wool/Alpaca. Yummy. It wants to be a cardigan, I think. The Green, also Three Waters Farm Wool/Alpaca, is awesome. I was thinking of using a bit of it on the cuffs on the Cardigan but worry that while I think it is cute now, in a few years I might not like it.

Also from Three Waters is some Superwash Merino in Aunt Maude’s Mauve.

This is some Cestari, a local Virginia Yarn, which will become Holiday Vests for the Small Hollering Boys. If I can get them to wear the vests, even if it is just for a photograph I will be very pleased.

Here is Frog being a whacko. Yes, he climbed the window screen to the top. And yes, he is chewing on my ball winder.

    The colors look even more bee-U-ti-ful in your pictures than in my memory! Our cats climb the screens, too (in between the window and the screen where it’s hard to get them back out).
