Now I am filling a few orders and tackling the enormous stash of fleeces from our own spring shearing as well as from the other farmers that Al shears for who don't want their wool. If I look at the stacked bags of fleeces all at once it is overwhelming. If I pull a bag out, sort it well and put it out to soak and dry the task seems like something I can accomplish. I spun through the best of a lovely little Shetland fleece just last night. I needed the yarn to finish knitting a hat so just pressed on. It looks as though the winter will be spent taking tiny bites out of the elephant-sized stockpile of dirty wool. And, hopefully, getting back into a more regular blogging routine.
