A couple of finished objects.... and the sheep and wool festival
First fo: Lion brand free shawl pattern in Homespun
#2: The pretty puggle of Roxycraft.com
This was done in more realistic colors with a fuzzier tlc yarn to look like real fur. it was for my cousin's graduation... don't ask.
The sheep and wool festival:
We went to the iowa sheep and wool festival in adel again this year. We: looked through the hall of breeds and mom found some tiny sheep she liked, watched another shearing demo, had lamb burgers/brats, ran into my sheep raising aunt, bought some alpaca roving, sheep and llama finger puppets/ornaments, yarn yardage counter, and schacht 112 hand cards, and looked at the winning fleeces.
i'm already using my carders on stuff. i retained how to use them pretty well. after i do some wool, i'm going to try the husky fur i have collected.
my aunt said to look at the farm bureau newsletter for cheap llamas. we found a few but we'd have to drive really far for them.
anyways, i need to get knitting.
