This is Jan's closet of fleece. All the fleece that has been sheared in the last month, chocolate dream fiber abounds, as she looks for a drying rack for the class she is teaching at the Knitting Expo in Seattle, April 14th.

"Trish Help! Help I'm falling!" (Pre-wine)

"I can't find it! Look at all this fleece", (let me tell you this is heavenly fleece to spin, clean soft and brown)

This is the class preparation for the "Felted Ball" (no farm yard humor here pleaseeee) necklace class Jan is teaching. We bought lots of wonderful bling for this class yesterday. I'm only sorry I'm not taking it. Note the cashmere and silk dyed in Newport Rocks, that was too felted to spin, lucky students to use cashmere/silk to felt with!

Beth and I are going to watch the new series "The Tudors" on Showtime tonight. Rome ended last week:>( so did away with HBO but started Showtime instead. We are going to spin so that Larrissa has enough work tomorrow. Having a day off was fun, but now the voices are getting louder in my head, especially the list of yarn to get done for tomorrow. Moses will be glad to see me. Mike comes for a visit on Tuesday, which is exciting but kinda scary, it isn't easy to make the adjustment from single to married, a person gets to doing things their way and then has to get use to making room for someone else. I wonder how much he is going to like living in a yarn factory.....

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I'm not a spinner -- not yet, anyway -- but that roving is making me drool!

Hi, I'm back! I was at Knit One over the weekend and I think I saw some of your handspun -- it was GORGEOUS!

What a lovely room of joy!! Can't imagine anything much better! I can see why it would be easy to fall into it!
Enjoy your husband and this beautiful green Spring that we are having here in Oregon. It really is more dramatic since we just got back from California.
It's good to be home!
