a cone of 40/2 linen (Henry’s Attic) and two tubes of 20/1 Vaxbo (Swedish) linen for a planned project, and…
a book, “Weave Structures The Swedish Way – volume 1” by Ulla Getzmann, translated and adapted by Becky Ashenden. From another vendor, I picked up “Knitting the Threads of Time, Casting Back to the Heart of Our Craft” by Nora Murphy, which looks like a good read.
I went back to Jefferson on Sunday morning and enjoyed visiting the sheep barns.
On Sunday morning I found a sheep-shearing demonstration. The shearer was so fast the sheep didn’t have time to complain!
Off to the right of the shearing demo were pens holding sheep that had been shorn, and those waiting to be shorn.
In another pen were two lambs, one so very small. I heard a young boy say his dad wasn’t sure the one on the right was going to survive. When I first saw them they were laying down, but after a bit got to their feet.
Mom and babies, future providers of fleece for handspinners.
All in all, a wonderful weekend, and something to look forward to again next year.
