Other Weekend Highlights

** Naturally-dyed 12 ozs of lamb’s wool locks in a daisy dyebath, adding a little baking soda at the end to change the ph; aiming for chartreuse but resulting in a kind of bright, yellow-green; pretty but not chartreuse

** Carded some sun-yellow lamb’s wool for a roving project; washed some Border Leicester fleece

** Spent an hour tearing apart the fiber room looking for an escaped guinea keet; finally found hunkered down among small bags of wool on a shelf about 4 feet off the floor

** Cleaned out the ‘deep bedding’ pen in the barn; spread the manure on the graveyard field; many thanks to John, Terry, Jonathan, Megan and Lena for their help and 5 1/2 hours of hard work

** Watched the tree swallows doing some serious dive-bombing of the crouching until almost flat Davita cat

** And best of all, picked and enjoyed the first blueberries of the summer!
