After “Melanie”:http://pinklemontwist.blogspot.com mentioned reserving a fleece for next spring it made me think …. with all of these angora bunnies around here, we are going to need some wool to send out to be processed to make a blend. I’ve found a place to send them out for processing, the “Wooly Knob”:http://www.woolyknobfibermill.com/ here in Indiana, unless someone has a better suggestion. I’ve heard the Knob takes awhile sometimes, but that they put out quality fiber.
Melanie had good experience with the Finn fiber from “Firefly Fields”:http://www.fireflyfields.com/ so she reserved hers there, and so did we after some research. We reserved fleece from
p=. “Uma”:http://www.fireflyfields.com/uma.htm and “Pilvi”:http://www.fireflyfields.com/pilvi.htm
Aren’t they sweet? We are so excited!
On the knitting front, I have half of a FO. If that is possible. I have the first of Em’s Jelly Bean socks complete.
I did *NOT* like the double wrapped short rows on this sock. So, I’m going to try out YO(YarnOver) short rows on the other sock. I figure my 5yo won’t look that close, and it’ll be a great trial experience for me. I’ll post my findings once I get there. I just need to cast on for the other sock first!
