Yours and mine!
And the kids’ too. (three out of four anyways) While I thought the best part of visiting the Mill was the fiber, the kids liked the animals outside. Sheep, llamas, chickens and probably more that I just don’t know about.
But here is my best part…my first fleece to fiber…
There’s 4 lb of cream Suri/Merino (80/20), just over a pound of dark, dark brown Baby Alpaca (from Tootsie Roll) and 4 lb of grey Alpaca/Merino (80/20). There’s another big ball of merino in the photo on the upper right corner because I fell in love with their creamy merino.
There of course had to be a small souvenier yarn purchase too.
Three colors of Fair Isle Fever, (green and blue are 90% merino, brown 90% corriedale / 10% Samoyed). The halo is gorgeous! While I had planned on cashmere, these colors grabbed me and shouted KNIT ME some colorwork!
I may only complete one of my Ravelympic events because of the distraction. I am nearing the edging of Ulmus and am excited at the prospect of the finished shawl.
I have played with some of the fiber made yarn and even planned a project! Can you guess what it is?
