Eli in the Manger
It's almost enough to get one started on Christmas carols! Wanted to show you Eli's favorite spot to enjoy his breakfast, surrounded by his bestest friends. Doesn't get too excited about things, this one. He just lounges while everyone else gathers round in his glow. Chomp, chomp, chomp. He lazily chews his cud. He is a cheeky monkey, our Eli.
Also wanted to report in and show you my Navajo-plied yarn from last night. Stayed up too late finishing it, but how nice to sit and spin once in a blue moon. The skein is soaking now - I hope some of that overply comes out in the hot water. The first three or four yards were terrible, so I cut that off and used it for skein ties. Don't tell, 'k? So, what can I make with 136 yards of a worsted weight stripey, feltable yarn?
It's getting hot all of a sudden. Like the weatherman looked up at the calendar and said, "good grief, it's June! Bring on the 90s!" Tomorrow I'm installing two more fans in the barn stalls to keep the alpacas as cool as can be. We have a sprinkler system, but on humid days it doesn't do much good at all. The breeze, however, is indespensible.
Hey, does anyone want to skirt fleece on Saturday? I'm thinking we need to just address these last couple of fleeces and be ready to ship off the fiber. If you're available in the morning, before it gets too toasty outside, let me know and we'll play with fiber!
