Caitlin went out to feed this morning while I was getting ready to go to the optometrist and discovered that Winter had had her baby. It was an11 months and five days gestation. I had it on my calendar, so I know for sure. She is a darker chocolate than Winter and still unnamed. I still have not settled on a theme for the year. I did get to see her before running off t my appointment.
I went back out this afternoon to check on the cria. Winter had just bit my hair, so I was trying to block her. She latched onto my shirt as I was checking out her baby. Winter is settling down, but she is not fit for public greetings!
I taught a pin weaving class to a select group of the Old Pueblo Knitters. They picked it up quickly. Above is the piece that I started during the class.
My piece turned into a landscape. It will be done, as soon as I weave in the loose ends and attach a saguaro rib for hanging. It was a very addictive piece to work on.
I carded up angora rabbit for an order and then carded a bunch more. Most of it got blended into black kid mohair and then one batch with black and navy blended and two batches with red and black blended. Now I am gearing up for spinning them. I ended up with 70 ounces blended. It is going to take a while.
