up home

This past weekend we got the chance to visit the farm. It's been a while since we've been up home. We spent the day dying fiber, spinning yarn, baking bread and chatting it up. My mom's busy collecting images and gathering information so that she can create a website for her fiber and yarn.

Here's a preview of some of the beautiful shades of fiber that we can expect next spring at shearing time. This little lady just loves to mug for the camera.

What's on the wheel: I'm thinking about spinning enough of the dyed top for a pair of socks and I want to make a sweater out of the naturally-colored ivory yarn on the far right. Should be a lot of happy summer spinning.

Thanks to my cousin Ashley for the beautiful photos of the farm animals.

  1. Can't wait to spin Dory's fiber next spring - a warm brown would make a beautiful sweater. Find a pattern!!
