The blog is going to be changing to a new format shortly. Our company is changing over to a Wordpress format. This won’t affect most of you, unless you have this blog saved as a favorite or follow a link here. I’m not sure if the old links will work. The new link is http://www.knitting.areavoices.com
As for this pretty little ball of fluff, it’s Romney Rambouillet mix. The long fibers of the Romney mix very nicely with the shorter Rambouillet. I think it’s going to spin like a dream. It’s beautiful, soft roving and I am thrilled beyond words at having it.
One of the women in my knitting group raises sheep and she and I have briefly talked about hooking up and getting some fleece from her. I would love to take the girls out to her farm to visit with the sheep. Last week on a whim I brought the girls to knit night with me. We thought we would treat the women to fresh picked raspberries from our yard; and the girls like going to the yarn store to visit. I was shocked to find this roving waiting for me! What a wonderful gift and such a surprise!
