Fall is a busy time on the farm

 I am busy spinning new styles of yarns for the shows that I am attending this fall. Last weekend I was in Pennsylvania for Knitters' Day Out. They were fascinated with my feathered collar, but I sold out of that style yarn, since I only had one set. I spent this week experimenting with different colors and feathers.

Come see me in the Ruritan Building at the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival in Berryville, Virginia, this weekend. Sat 10-5, Sun 10-4. If you have seen me there before, I am in the same spot.
 I have been shearing goats when Marc is around to help me do their bellies and legs. I can do two kids in the time that it takes me to do one adult. If anyone is looking for a great kid or yearling buck, this is the weekend to do it. I cannot over winter them, so they are all for sale.
 I taught a wet felting glass earlier this month. This is my bowl. I always make them reversible. We all had a good time and each of our projects expressed our personalities. lovely bowls and bags.
I always try to have at least one batch of black kid mohair available for the Medieval Collar with a Modern Twist. My bag f black kid mohair from last year is almost gone. I only have one really black kid, so the roving will be closer to silver this year.

Next weekend I will be at the Waterford Fair in Waterford, Virginia.

The weekend after I will be in Hartford, Connecticut for Stitches East.
