The fiber gods must be happy. I think they are happy with me!!!! Why do you ask? Well remember my post about this?
Just last month I sent all that awesome, wonderful fiber off to Stonehenge Fiber Mill (oops, I'm an idiot, it is Stonehedge Fiber Mill) and yesterday I got this.
You can't see all the goodness. There is about 4 lbs of black, black, 4 lbs of a deep grey, 4 lbs of a cream and 4 lbs of a cocoa colored alpaca roving. Yummy, yummy.
That was yesterday, then today I received this in the mail. This is September's installment from Abby's Yarns Batt Club, Harvest Moon. 2 oz of 40% superfine merino, 30% tussah silk, 15% brown suri alpaca and 15% mongolian cashmere with 2 oz tussah silk all hand dyed to match. This stuff is awesome.
My boys say if we have a tragedy of apocalyptical proportions I will be ready to keep us clothed and warm for some time. Trouble is it all has to be spun and then knitted up (I don't own a loom) and I'm the only spinner and knitter in the house. Gosh, talking about pressure. We are all gun enthusiasts. We aren't hunters but in a pinch we could take care of ourselves. But, I bet the little creeps will expect me to not only cloth their sorry rears, I bet they will expect me to do all the cooking as well. Not to mention the cleaning, washing and such. I'll have to be the one that makes the candles and keeps the stinking fire going while they are out running helter skelter through the woods. They don't know crap about herbs and edible roots, that will fall on me as well. Where do they get off??????
I don't know, maybe the fiber gods aren't happy at all, maybe it is the fiber demons that are dancing a jig. Well, guess I'm going to pull another Scarlett O'hara, "I'll think about that tomarra, if I that about it today I'll go crazy." I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. But, you can be darn tootin that these people are at least going to learn to knit. Jerks!!!!!
On to happier and simpler things........Sara & Matthew's engagement photo.
