The first time I helped Bonnie skirt her fleeces she sent me home with a baggie full of wool which I washed just after Rhinebeck. Here’s the cleaned stuff. I attempted to spin it from the locks but I think I’ll need more experience before I can really do that so I pulled out the brand-spankin’ new hand cards and gave those a whirl coming up with some fluff that I turned into singles this morning. It was a lot of fun to play with and the singles have a really beautiful luster.
My Easter cactus has decided to bloom. I think leaving it out on the patio for the summer made it quite happy as it doesn’t usually bloom. Perhaps the night blooming cirrus will follow suit. Madli’s shawl is progressing nicely now and I’m up to the 6th repeat. 25 more to go!
