Some of you may remember the wonderful and very comedic (borderline..a little crazy) Ewey from our Yahoo 360 days! She and I got together at her home yesterday for some spinning. We had fun on her outside deck with the sound of her chickadees providing us music with an occasional piping in from her sheep and donkeys. (Yes, she has donkeys!) The donkeys were added to the family of animals to protect the sheep but they are not meeting the minimum working requirements.
Here's Ewey with some of her own roving from her sheep. Because I had to lighten the picture you are not getting the beautiful color of the Vermont foliage in the background. (sigh!)
Just some of her roving from her sheep that she is now selling. Ewey has an electric drum carder that does a wonderful job. She also dyes it herself. Interested in buying some? If so, let me know and I'll forward the info to her. I don't believe she actually has a web site (yet) to sell her fiber. I forgot to take pictures but I purchased roving from her ewe called "Butterfly".
Just a few of the sheep parading by as we sat on the deck spinning!
A neighbor made this "Snowball" quilt for Ewey. She keeps it in her studio to snuggle with on the couch.
Ewey has been knitting "Bat" hats for her craft shows. They have been a big seller with the college kids!
I'm wearing my "Spiral Scarf" that is not quite complete. I have to reblock it and make some adjustments. I'm not excited about this scarf but perhaps I'll feel differently once I've done a few extra things to it. Perhaps I need a few people to tell me that it is beautiful. I'll post more pictures in an upcoming blog.
Yesterday was just absolutely delightful in so many ways. I spent time with a very good friend. The weather was perfect and the drive extremely scenic. Ewey baked a Vermont McIntosh apple cake while I was visiting as well. It was delicious!
I have started a new project and I can't wait to show you. I am loving it! It may be in my top 3-5 favorite projects. Ewey got a sneak preview yesterday and I am swearing her to secrecy.
Happy Knitting and Spinning!
