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.
