What to do with MORE Snow



Do you feel like I am a broken record?? SO DO I !! The wind is howling, the snow is coming sideways and we have ice in those snowflakes. Chores this morning was brisk to say the least and I had ice on my eyelashes after the first 5 minutes. Imagine how the animals feel...


So no complaining because it does not change what is. So to get to work is all I can do. Yep, pots of fiber on the burners getting washed and placing such a great smell in the house.. Only fiber folks would think that it would be O.K. to be trapped in the house on a snowy day with this smell rolling through every room. I presently have in the pots and on the drying racks Alpaca from Juno.... An amazingly soft guy who came to us from an abusive owner. For many years this guy was angry, mean and dangerous but over time, love and continual training he found his purpose - to guard his flock of lambs and then big rams. His fleece is soft as butter and is a multi colored gray. I love spinning his fiber because it reminds me of the courage he had to build a new life here on the farm and to give his heart to small lambs who came to depended on him for love, security and protection.

Soon this amazing fleece will be ready to work with - Any thoughts on what I should do with it??

Any one out there want some before I start?? Just let me know. Last offering of this on Etsy went so fast so I don't want someone to be left out.

oh he DOES have gorgeous fleece :) I love the metal-colors of it. It makes me wish I had the time to pick up my spinning again. Ah, school.
