A long awaited box arrived at our house today for my daughter Deb. It’s from Susan Gibbs from the Martha’s Vineyard Fiber Farm. Know what’s in the box? YARN… yarn from the fiber farm festival in April that we attended. We might have seen this actual wool being shorn ! How exciting is that. Considering that I don’t knit or spin I’m pretty darn excited.
Here’s Deb taking a picture of the box before ripping into it. The picture is of course on her blog – www.chappysmom.com Go take a look.
One, two.. yup, two 16 oz bags full of cormo wool, ready to spin or dye. Chappy, who was at the fiber farm festival too is excited to see and smell what’s in the bags.
And there it is. Isn’t it beautiful. It’s sooooo touchable and sooooo incredibly soft and sooooo delicious looking.
This photo is outdoors… this yarn is beautiful everywhere. Deb will turn this into something not only gorgeous but a one of a kind remembrance of Martha’s Vineyard… and of our favorite shepherdess, Susan and her favorite guy, Patrick.
