I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee...Psalm 9:verses 1 and 2a

I am thinking about sheep and spinning this afternoon. Sheep's wool is deliciously soft to handle. And to knit with....ahhhh. Its well worth every penny you spend on it.
These pictures were from a local sheep & wool festival last year. A couple of years ago we bought a sheep's fleece from here. The breed was a Border Leicester, and about 6 inches length of lock and very curly.
This poor nakedy girl just got sheared apparently. It must have been a very odd feeling for her right then, but she seemed oblivious. My spinning guild is meeting this week-end and I'm half wanting to go and half wanting to stay home. Sound familiar? Ahhh....choices. And I finally did get back to my knitting group this week, thanks to hubby's gentle push. I have finished my yellow scarf and want to work up a gauge for a hat or sweater. Hope you are having a cozy day!
