More Spring Surprises

Remember when Shaun escaped and spent a happy day with the ewes in January?  Guess what I noticed today?  Looks like lambing isn’t quite over.  And I have the Washington State Department of Ecology to thank for this.

In other news, I am mailing two bags o’ wool to  They use hair, fur and wool to soak up oil from spills.  So my skirted wool is being sent to Florida to help clean up the Gulf of Mexico spill.  Pretty cool, huh?

And last but not least, I have been plying yarn from my bobbins to make room for a class I am taking this next weekend.  It’s Traditional Shetland Spinning & Lace Knitting, and it’s being taught by Elizabeth Johnston of Shetland, Scotland and Martha Owen, resident artist at the John C. Campbell Folkschool in western North Carolina.  So I have been plying like crazy, skein winding and washing my skeins.  I was too lazy to bring out the drying rack so hung the skeins in the shower to dry.

OK, so now I am off to the Post Office!

    How cool that you are doing what you can to help with the gulf cleanup. I heard that hair is used for this, and if I hadn’t just sent 12 inches to Locks of Love, I would have donated for this. I would like to invite you to my blog to receive a Life is Good award. Have a great day!
