Work In Progress

Sadly not new pictures of my only knitting WIP...which is a basically just a work with no progress :-/.

Just a pretty fleece and a bunch of drop spindles on the porch.  Yep, it's that time of year.  Time to be getting ready for the fall fiber festivals.  I have two coming up - the Millersburg Chautauqua Days festival this weekend and the big Kentucky Wool Festival the first weekend of October...which isn't far away...but it sure feels like it today.  96 degrees this afternoon. 

'Nuff said.

Happy thoughts, happy thoughts...this is Hershey.  Remember when Hershey was...Hershey colored2013 :-o.  How did this happen?  

He's a beautiful silver now.  This is only 1/3 of his fleece.  It was too big to wash all together.

It sure looks pretty and cool and relaxing on the porch this afternoon...  Luckily now that "August" is finally here (after two months of July apparently) the evenings cool off pretty nicely.  The Wool House Crafters meeting tonight shouldn't be too awful.  Auntie Reg made chocolate cake so that will make it all better...until tomorrow...when it's 96...again.  No break until at least next week. 

'Nuff said.

You do make this hot September day look wonderful. Lovely results from the love and care you give your sheep. Miserable here in central KY. 98 degrees...blah!

I'm sorry I can't share; we're on our third day of deliciously cool and rainy weather here in NW OR. Summer isn't over yet, but Fall is starting to kick its you-know-what!

Hershey? Hershey?

Wow. Time flies faster and faster. Except when the thermometer is involved. TheSummerWithoutAnEnd.

I can't believe how pale he is! Well, silver is beautiful too, plus you can dye it. Well, SOMEone could dye it. ;-) That porch looks so inviting. Have a great get together.

I just sold the last of Hershey's fleece from last year, and have only a wee bit of Murphy left. I can guarantee that Hershey has a lovely and soft fleece and it takes dye very well. The light gray in his fleece tones down colors and makes them richer. I am going to miss getting his fleece every year.
