Poor Marta; she's taking the separation from her (nearly as big as she is) firstborn very hard. Notice that veteran Annabelle is quiet?
I'm planning to go to Black Sheep Gathering for the day on Friday, and I'm thinking I want to take my two remaining fleeces to be turned into roving (to be picked up at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, saving shipping costs). That means I need to get cracking and skirt them! I have too many fiber-irons in the fire right now. I'm still picking Brava's neck wool; it needs to be washed and carded before the start of the Tour de Fleece in ten days. I've set my two-tone Taygete aside (all that remains is the contrast-color picot edging/bind-off) to start a white shawl for a dear friend who is moving to Saipan on July 18.
The yarn is a cotton/rayon blend that I'm hoping will make a cool, comfortable cover-up for the weather there. My friend chose the color and pattern.
The weather today is cold, damp and grey; I'm wearing Polarfleece and sipping hot chocolate. (I finally found a recipe for instant hot cocoa mix I like, avoiding all the yucky ingredients in the commercial stuff. A pinch of cinnamon makes it even better.) Summer weather is supposed to return with "official" summer – tomorrow!
