Another Adventure

So, Skylar and I have been having some fun times.  I've been spinning everything I had in my stash ending up with such interesting creations as:


I'm working on some singles for a sweater:

And culminating in a lovely merino/silk mix:

A couple weekends ago, we have the priviledge of watching some sheep get sheared.  I rescued a fleece from decomposing in a farm yard (from a mix breed meat sheep with a nice coat) and have been playing with it. 

Let me tell you, if you've never had the opportunity to dunk a large amount of not too terribly dirty looking raw fleece into a sink full of cold water and watch the previously clean water turn a very stunning muddy brown, you're missing out.  I was seriously impressed by the hidden yuck.  I don't yet have carders, but a cheap pair of dog slickers have been filling in until my birthday.
