Wooly Wonders

I am currently enjoying the break in humidity- last Friday was stifling hot, and it's been beautiful for the last couple of days, if a bit dry.  But hey, it's going to be hot and humid for the weekend.  I console myself with the fact that I'm halfway through July, and then it's just August to go.  Sad, to be wishing the summer away, but it isn't enjoyable any more.

Tour de Fleece continues- literally, here.  A Dorset fleece arrived yesterday from an Etsy seller, and it's beautiful. I will be sorting and washing for the next while.

Then I will be using my new Valkyrie wool combs- these are walnut, and if I don't end up using them for wool, then I can stick them in the burglar.

Spinning on Mr. Reeves....are we having fun yet?
FC got me this Strauch skein winder- in oak. I have had an old one that is literally falling to pieces that has been repaired many times.  No more picking up bits of it off the floor every time I wind wool.

And KC, while not a huge fan of hot weather, wonders why kitty meat isn't available at 6:00 am.

Peace out.

The respite from the heat and goo was nice while it lasted - it's heating back up again here.

I'm with you - the nice break in the heat was too short. ICK!

Be sure to spin up your fleeces before next May, so you can buy more when we go to MDSW ...

Poor KC. He is so neglected. I may have to call the authorities, you know ...

I'll send you some rain if you send us some heat. I have a sweater on!

I hope that "kitty meat" means "meat for kitties" instead of "meat made from kitties"...

:/ Wasn't last Friday the 13th delightful?!

What exactly happens on the Tour de Fleece (other than spinning)?

Hi Lorraine :) It's been awhile; I've been just about blog-extinct but am trying to catch up on my favorites and checked in here of course! YOU LOOK FABULOUS!!! You are sooooo skinny! Good for you! I am jealous of your wool winding abilities! I recently took a drop spindle class (I stink) so I also just signed up for Craftsy's Spindle Spinning class. Yet another addiction I am setting myself up for I am sure. K well just in to say hey! Take good care!
