Spring is here and the air is filled with the sound of chirping little migratory birds! Canada geese flew over today and landed in the pea field to look for food. Lots of squashed gophers on the roads (we are on the upswing of a cyclical infestation of these little varmints) .
All the animals, farm and wild are enjoying the sunny days. Here's a photo of Finnegan enjoying breakfast in the sun. I have been spinning his fleece (from his first clipping last spring).
Here's some photos of the yarn in the pan before the dye and after the dye is applied (the next step not shown is processing in the oven for about 3/4 hour). This is for a yarn exchange with Val from the south coast of Australia. Hope she likes it! Maybe it's going to be knit into a beanie. The colors were inspired by a photo she took of a sunset.
