Well, I had to try it out. I have a Cormo Fleece from Cormo Sheep and Wool Farm and I pulled a bit off, scoured it, put it on the drum carder, and then spun up a single. The fluff you see on the right is the other half that I'll spin and then ply with the first sample bobbin. I LOVE to see what a fleece wants to be. I have 7 lbs, which will be probably around 3 lbs once it's washed and ready to go. This stuff is SOFT and sooooo nice. This shepherd keeps her sheep under coats so there is very little vegetable matter (VM) to deal with. If any at all! Lovely!
So, who's been cross country skiing in my backyard over night? Leaving NO pole marks, no wobbling, and somehow going UP the steps (or down) in a straight line? Totally wierd! Check this out. And, click for big....
My Mother-in-law is here,
So, I'm having surgery on my broken foot. Wednesday, December 19th. It's not just for the break, it's for the very large bunion which is causing other huge problems with all kinds of things. My mom is trying to talk me into doing both my feet, but there is NO way I could get around without her staying for the full six weeks I would need. She would have to do everything!
I'm scared. I hear it is one of the biggest painful things to do. Ack!!!!
Pray for me if you do that, and if not, send up some good thoughts PLEASE!
Now it is time for some Christmas shopping so we are off.....
And, that is all she wrote!
