Adventures in Fencing, etc.
This weekend we took our first steps in fixing the perimeter fencing on our property.
Before- the Short and Schlumpy fencing:
And After- the Tall and Tidy fencing:
And here I am between the before and after, digging post holes the old-fashioned way. We have since decided we’re going to need an auger attachment for the tractor. The old-fashioned way sure is good exercise, but takes an awfully long time.
And in other news, the Oregon vest is coming right along. Back and one front side done. Did a quick trial assembly and steaming to test the sizing,, and I think we’re in good shape.
The pockets are knit with the back of the vest, and then sewn in against each front side, leaving part of each side seam open for the pocket entry. Neat, eh?
Anyway, I only have this much yarn left, and one more front side to go, so I’d better get spinning-
Gotta get this stuff plied and off the bobbins because Wednesday I’m going to a Comprehensive Spinning workshop with Judith McKenzie McCuin up in Bellingham. Then to top it off, Saturday is a fleece sale at Jonassons farm in Burlington.
Now that’s a good wool week!
