This shows my latest start of a fiber project. I’ve been inspired to do more of the projects I’ve been dreaming about. This one is one I have been wanting to do since 1999 when I bought one of my first sheep Babette (and my favorite) and my first guard llama. I bought them from the Modens, and she had a gorgeous rug in front of her fireplace. She said she had made it by knotting locks of Lincoln fleece. Unfortunately I didn’t ask her more about how she made it and have been pondering it ever since. I bought a Lincoln fleece at the first Shepherd Extravaganza for this purchase, and it’s been waiting ever since. So finally I decided to take the plunge. I decided to use a pattern I found in an old weaving book and weave the raw locks onto this cotton warp with fuzzy grey yarn as weft. We’ll see how it all works out!
