Anyway, I noticed that I have SO MUCH fiber in the house. I can knit at least 3 sweaters, 3 shawls, 2 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of mittens, and hours worth of spinning.
And my boyfriend still thinks I'm not insane.
After coming home with only 8 oz of fiber from the Maryland Sheep and Wool (I know, I'm proud of myself), I decided that I shouldn't buy any more yarn until Maryland Sheep and Wool next year.
Some silk caps, primary color roving for mixing colors,
and a braid from my good friend Mary Ann @ Three Waters Farm
in the coloway Morroco
Enter this past Sunday--
My good friend Miss A and I went venturing out to a farm with Jacob sheep! Since the Yarn Harlot raved about the breed, I was worried about not finding any. Fortunately, I was able to find some local fleece available. yay!
kind of shy
After sorting through the fluffy and lovely fleeces, it was like Christmas:
I'm the fleece Santa!
I'm pretty sure I can work with the fiber I have for a full year. Not just for knitting, but processing and spinning the fleece.
Let's see how long this will last =)
