Getting Ready for the Open House

We've been spending some time getting ready for Saturday's Shearing Day Open House.


We assembled some felting kits. They include felting needles, foam, and an ounce of our wool. If you come to our Open House, you will be able to meet Barbara, who is a fabulous needle felter. You can see some of her work here. Who knows? You might be inspired to start needle felting yourself. 


We spent some time cranking socks. If you come on Saturday during the morning, you will be able to see Joyce crank socks on her circular sock knitting machine. We will have some of our socks for sale, if anyone is interested.



We also dyed some wool yarn to make socks with. If you come to the Shearing Day, you will be able to watch Kari and Chris spin wool into yarn. Never a dull moment at Shearing Day. Pass the word... For more information, click here.
