Yeesh! I've been away a while!

The lambs I wrote about ten (10!) days ago are fully recovered, and all is well in sheepdom. We've had many family members visiting, Joe's 5th birthday party, and lots more rain. I will certainly add some more farmish details when I catch my breath.

Right now, I'm on my way to take a passel of kids berry picking, but I thought I'd write a quick yarn-related post.

This is a batt of gray roving. It doesn't look like much....
But then, it spins into this...

There is an extra-special quality to handspun yarn. I didn't spin this one (I am, um, not so good with the spinning...) but a new friend from the booth beside us at a yarn sale did.

Pretty cool, eh?
