Now I know these little tape measures from Lantern Moon have been around for quite some time. The white ones are cute, the somewhat elusive black ones are adorable, but this little brown guy was totally irresistible!! (The camera picked up a few rouge fibers on his face - that have since been removed. He's now perfectly beautiful). He came home with me, in lieu of a fleece to spin. Perhaps next year - but I'm just not ready for that yet - not sure I'll ever be. .
The wool festival was fun, although I'm sure small compared to many found around the country. We had torential rains just moments prior to leaving home, but the rain gods were good to us the rest of the day. Melissa went with me, and she brought home a sizable bag of goodies. I was primarily good - trying to keep in mind my current stock of unspun fiber.
Speaking of which, this 4 oz SW Merino braid (another Christmas fiber from my son) was spun last night,
and plied this morning into this super soft, cushy, worsted weight yarn.
And late last week, the postlady brought this to my door.
While I ponder on that though, I still have one more braid of my Christmas fiber. (Talk about Christmas in July, urrrr - June I guess!). And I saved the best for last.......
