Tina, from Ewephoria Farm, had a garage sale Saturday and oh couse, I drove away with a trunk load of fiber! The day was perfect — lots of sunshine and warmth — which made all of Tina’s things just look that much more attractive!
Yep, that’s my 8.25 lbs of romney fleece that I reserved from the spring shearing, plus I got a great niddy-noddy, a bag of commercial white mohair for dyeing, and a couple of skeins of periwinkle Brown Sheep for $1 a piece. I scored big time!
There were little baby lambs everywhere (I wish I could have fit one in my purse and then convinced the KCMO zoning board that it was a goldendoodle).
The mom’s (most of whom had been recently sheared) were very protective and a few stamped their feet at us and gave us the Cesar Milan stare-down. : )
I then stopped by Yarn Barn on the way home for more eye candy. Between the beautiful weather and KU’s great run in the march to the Final Four, Mass Street was a sea of blue t-shirted students. And of course, after wandering through Yarn Barn I had to cruise across the street to Sarah’s fabric store. Oh, my, I had a great Saturday!
