Black Sheep! Black Fleece!
What a weekend.
Here’s a quick rundown-
There were sheep of many colors:
Primping for the show ring-
I looked up Michelle, of Boulderneigh, and it turned out that needed a hand, so she gave me a quick rundown, handed me Bramble’s lead, and off we went!
After the Shetland show, the man and I took a walkthrough of the vendors. As you would expect, it was an amazing assortment of fiber-
(Note- this neato-frito little travel wheel is a Spinolution “Bee”. There are a lot of cool things about it, but what I love best is that the bobbin is removed from the front of the flyer! You just pinch the sides of the flyer together, the front part with the orifice slips off, and the bobbin pops out! And it has a really slick mechanism for adjusting the bobbin brake. I don’t think I can explain it properly,, so encourage you all to check it out on the Spinolution website.)
And then there was the wool show.
Man, were there a lot of nice fleeces.
(that last one is Teeswater, on the hoof)
And this is the one that I brought home.
Yeah. Denise is a happy girl.
