Musings of a self-taught crafter

I own a sheep! September 6, 2008

Filed under: General — blueberryblues @ 10:35 am

A few months back I entered a yarn giveaway hosted by Susan of Martha’s Vineyard Fiber Farm (a bonus, I won the 6 skeins of beautiful blue baby alpaca!).  After I entered, I decided to check out the farm and instantly fell in love with the sheep (specifically, this one and these two).  My husband and I have been enjoying our share of vegetables from our CSA all summer and the idea of community supported agriculture appeals to both of us.  So, after I raved about the farm and going on endlessly about the cute sheep, my husband decided it would make a perfect anniversary gift for me and invested in a share of the Spring 2009 shearing.  An exciting surprise!

So, I own a sheep!  I can’t wait to get my hands on the yarn sometime next year.  But, until then, I will have to research how to dye yarn and work on whittling down my stash to make room for the incoming goodies.

    Very cool!!
    Kool Aid dyeing is very easy and fun (and no scary chemicals, just the frightening thought that people actually injest Kool Aid).
