Look what I got!!


Isn't it gorgeous? One of my co-workers and I were talking one day. She noticed my knitting. While she knits, she prefers spinning. With fleece from her own sheep. She's originally from Michigan and owns sheep. She asked me if I'd like some fleece and of course I said yes. It came this week. I'm not touching it until I learn to spin a lot better than I do now. It's a shetland fleece and the donor's name is Annie. Thanks again, Nancy. I don't have any pictures of Annie, but here's a look at some of her relatives from last week.








TTYL,

Melodye

That's really cool, to get the fleece straight from someone you know who raises their own. I am sure you will be spinning it in no time♥

Hi Melody,
That fleece looks beautiful. I'm sure it will make wonderful yarn. I'm spinning some black Shetland right now.

I think your spinning looks great. What type of wheel do you have?
