Lambing update

No lambs yesterday, so kept myself busy with some wool projects.

Washed my first 2018 fleece, Mrs Hughes, a beautiful grey Katmoget

Pretty lock from Mrs. Hughes

Finished the fingerless mitts from my self striping yarn.  One is longer than the other, but you get the idea.

For once I sewed the loose ends immediately after finishing knitting them - I hate the sewing part so usually put it off as long as possible.  Wonder how much time went into raising, shearing, washing, carding and spinning these little bits that are going to be tossed in the trash bin.

I am carding and spinning Oberyn
