What I have been up to lately

Its COLD here in Southeastern Indiana the past couple of days with lots of snow.  Since I am off today I am spending it in the warm till I have to do more tending to the animals.  I got some new roving back from the mill back in Nov but have not got any plied till today.  It is 41% Moorit Shetland, 29% Agouti Angora and 30% Llama from Gama's cria fleece.  If you have never spun Llama wool before its not as soft as Alpaca but it has a slicker feel to it making it more elegant in my opinion.  This being from  a cria fleece is extra soft.   I also made some felted soap bars.  I made 2 with alpaca but only one turned out the way I wanted and I made another with Lincoln sheep wool.  I like the Lincoln the best since it is a little scratchier I think it will work better for a scrubber.  Here is a pic God Bless!

When I grow up what....

Color do I wanna be?

I have blue gray eyes, was born blue but have been changing colors for about 2 weeks now.  Both my parents are black.  On my sire's side there are some Tans, and an otter, REW and one steel.  On my dam's side there is only black and REW.    Here are a couple more pics.  Hope you all had a Happy New Year!  God Bless!!!
