Getting Ready!

 

Dying yarn in a water bath on stove.

 

It is that time of year!  The hay has been cut once and is stored in the hay loft of our little barn.  Our goats are grazing and growing lots of beautiful fiber.  I am dying yarn like crazy!  Today’s color is honey mustard for some of our lace weight blended mohair!

Spring in November!

It’s true.  This week the weather has been glorious with temperatures reaching into the 70’s. No one is complaining – not Jim or I or our animals!

Oh – we have more animals – 8 alpacas have been added to our flock.

Bacca, Casper, Richard, Sapphron, Daisy, Tansy, Oreo, and Reese – we need to get name tags!  They join Dorito, M&M and Telemark.  Sadly we lost Dazzle a bit ago.  We have LOTS of fiber!

ZekeandAlphHope your fall is as beautiful as ours!
