Full moon randomness

 When you come home to find your newest kitty boy has
played ring-around-the-rosie with your wool/yak yarn from the second floor,
around and around the cat door, and to the basement.

You can't help but to laugh.
My fault for leaving the studio door open.
Boys. Love. Yarn.

Then in a creative reuse center e-blast you spy a warping board
among the sea of sewing machines...

Good thing a friend rescued it for a song.

When you toss-ALL-the dyes into the pot..

Turned out pretty cheery on this cold damp spring day.

Happy Friday folks!!

Maryland Sheep and Wool

 Last weekend was Maryland Sheep and Wool.

ALWAYS a good time rain or shine.

Love this guy..

So excited to say our guild placed Second in the 
Sheep-to-Shawl competition.  

Sheep is sheared, wool carded, then hand spun and woven into
a shawl in less than 3 hours.  Once the shawl is off the loom it gets washed, 
handed into the officials to be judged and then auctioned.

Our theme was 'Violets in the Grass"..

It takes a great team effort and I am
so proud of them!

Hope everyone had a wonderful wooly weekend!
