We had a great Thanksgiving, lots of food, football and family. And all at once! My Black Friday was spent doing a little grocery shopping for my Mom and myself and then I beat feet back to the mountain. It's been very cold at night, down to single digits. The horses and goats are doing well with it. The new hay is nice and sweet and nourishing. The winter coats heavy and warm. The heated buckets and tanks keeping everything drinkable. The single feral cat has made herself a safe warm spot in the new hay stack. She allows me now to pick her up and of course gets underfoot purring and bumping my legs when I bring her breakfast. I'm convinced she chased off her sister. I think it would have worked out better if we had been given one of each sex instead of three females. Oh well, at least we have one able mouser and it seems she is doing a fine job.
There was a little production out of the sewing salon. This is a modified Folkwear Middy Blouse.
Lengthened, the collar cut way down to a shawl type, the sleeves gathered into a narrow cuff and all done in a bright lime baby wale corduroy.
Of all the citrus colors I think this is my favorite one.
Last year when my Dad's weaving stuff arrived, he had saved a Mama Bear yarn swift for me. I had bought this for him way back when he started weaving, but along the way he found a collapsible metal swift he liked better.
I got this one back and I love it. I'm making myself a knitted hat out of some of the yarn I spun during Spinzilla.
In fact my hat and mitten stash is so pitifully low, it's likely that a few more will be made and I have some great homespun to pick from for them.
This lovely yarn started out as one of the rovings I could spin from Fibermania.
For those of you that can count, yes, I do have a fourth loom. The Murphy loom has been patiently waiting with his prayer flag warp on. I'm just not ready to tackle that.
Parting shot: Bundled!
