Nice to See You In Person

It's been far to long since we gathered our goodies and headed to a fiber festival. The excitement of getting ready is nearly overwhelming. So many details to iron out one of which is the game of Tetrus than insues as we attempt to get it all into the SUV. Before heading to BSG, Don decided we needed to rent a trailer to carry all that had been created in the past two years. Unfortunately he decided to find one the day before we were to pack. He managed to find the last one in Northern California and headed down the hill to get it.

Getting getting the Best Fleece!!!

It's Spring in California and that means lambing/kidding time and Shearing the Sheep. While I don't have a flock of my own...I whole heartedly support my friends who raise the most luscious fiber. From Alpaca to Wenslydale and soft to lustrous...this is the best time of year to support your local growers. If you want to get the best pick of the fleece then attend the shearing day and lend a hand. The very best of the lot get entered in Wool Shows to compete for first place Blue & Best of Show ribbons.
