I'm Baaccck!!

Hello All!

I can't believe it's been over 2 years since I last posted - I am a baaadd blogger. But, I've decided to try to keep this up as a list of the things I am doing and things I've learned now. I'll try to be better.. I promise!

Here's my latest project:

A big BEAUTIFUL Cormo fleece from Ellie at Angel Crossing Farm owned by Patricia and Victor Loun. The fleece is 8.6lbs, and as you can see takes the entire living room floor at my mother's house.

It's come just in time too! My dear mother just had hip replacement surgery and is NOT the type to take this laying OR sitting down, but (and all you fiber-holics can drool) loves to pick wool. For those of you non-spinners, that means taking lock of washed wool and painstakingly separate the fibers from each other to make spinning easier. SO, I didn't buy this fleece for me, but rather for my mother. Really! I'm so selfless :).

I taught her the new method of washing preparation I watched Judith MacKenzie McCune do at the 2011 Madrona Fiber Arts Festival and learned from ThreeSheep's blog and article - thank you ThreeSheeps! Also, the people from Ravelry. I'll post the results later this week.
