Fiber filled Friday!

I’m so excited we got our sheeps wool processed over the summer and just got it back last weekend.

We took her wool to a fiber mill in Oakhurst and blended it with about 30% alpaca fiber. This is what the alpaca fiber looked like the week before we took it.

There’s about 2 large trash bag size bags of rovings that I can use for spinning into yarn. We’re also going to try felting a hat and slippers.
I also had her spin a pound of the fiber into DK weight yarn. She gave us the waste fiber which is the little bits that doesn’t make it into the final rovings and yarn. I’ve been working on the Beekeepers quilt so I’m going to use the waste fiber to stuff it!

Moonlit yoga!

Wow there is something magical about doing yoga under an (almost) full moon! We have continued to have yoga every Wednesday night at 630 through the heat of summer. But now the nights are starting earlier and getting chilly. The last few weeks we ended class in the dark but since the time change tonight was our first class that started in the dark. Actually it was dark an hour before class started. I kept thinking there is no way anyone is going to come out in the dark but sure enough they all showed up! Talk about hard core!

Thank you everyone for coming out and thank you to the moon for lighting our mats 🙂
