January 31, 2010

today we did this (and more, but it's late, my friends, and you'll have to wait):

yarn8

these are some of my most recent handspun yarns, all finished and ready for the shop. from left to right: "juniper jubilee" (targhee wool); "rumpelstiltskin" (wool and silk); "io" (wool, alpaca,silk); and "bremen town" (wool....cormo? and yes Alex, that is what your new yarn is named). raspberry bushes in the background, daffodils and strawberries at his feet. it is seriously that warm here, folks, there are buds blooming in Laurelhurst Park. i hope that February doesn't turn all cruel on the little dears.

then we took the train out to my mom's house!

and i'll leave you with her splendid view of Mt. Hood. i also took some pictures of her amazingly tall thoroughbred, but he's such a handsome fellow and i'm pretty ambivalent about the pictures so i'm going to sit with them for a few days...
