This morning started off a little rough, while we knew it was coming it was still sad to hear of the passing of my husband’s Grandmother. She was a lovely woman and will be missed very much.
I figured with her passing that it might be easier on my husband if I took one of the kids with me today to my guild meeting. So I brought along my daughter.
She learned to make yarn cakes at today’s guild meeting, and while she was quiet for most of the time, she spent a good fifteen minutes telling her daddy all about it when we got home.
Meanwhile, I learned about carding boards
This is the yarn cake my daughter made from the llama & Icelandic wool blend I spun up, I’m very happy with the outcome which is why I decided to rent the guild drum carder for another month, I have much more llama as you have all seen and I have many plans for it. The drum carder will be much faster then the hand carders.
Here is where I kill two birds with one stone. As I mentioned in my last entry, my husband decided that the llama wool blend would make excellent socks, as I am still working on my Jane Austen project, this is the perfect time to complete at least one clothing item this year.
I think this is project number 9 that I’ve started this year.
Have a nice night folks!
