nothin' much happening here thats worth writing about but i feel compelled to say SOMETHING...just because
.mmmmm....worlds a right mess, my back is killin' me and it reached 70 today....wow...'round mid day the sheep retreat to the dark cool barn....shearing time is almost here!
I've been carefully getting back into my fiber stuff...lungs willing.
skirted my new fleeces....basically removing all the butt and neck fiber and anything with too much hay or poop. I've spun some...wearing some serious respirator gear while i'm at it. I spin my wool "in the grease" meaning right off the animal....some folks wash their fleeces first....i wash mine after its spun, then hang it dry.
and heres me, lookin' like an 80's andro flannel dyke...lol....those are my skeins in the background.
