The farm isn't raising sheep for the handspinners' market, but rather for meat. I won't gross out some of my more delicate readers, but I did get to witness a lamb being processed and the experience was quite moving. The men did their work with care and respect. The meat looked beautiful and the sheep was happily and carefully raised.
I have skeined up my blue lace yarn and the yardage totaled and impressive 430 yards! The skein has a graduate gradient color shift that I just love. I'm so glad I stuck with this fiber - it is very impressive! I still have about 4 oz left to spin.
We are celebrating; I have accepted an offer for a new job! Waaahoo!
