Happy hay field update!

Lots of new fiber fun on the website today! Look for new roving, batts, dyed locks and lots of unwashed fiber.... We will get a yarn update done this week--and new 3 Chic Knit items too. We've been buuuuusy!

This is a shawl/throw designed by my Mom Nancy and our Molly sheep. The yarn is all my handspun and Mom's design work. Molly had input on her yarn--she is a very sweet girl who was born in the middle of winter (instead of spring) and her mama was unable to get her babies dry fast enough. As a result, after Molly arrived to stay with us, she ended up losing the bottom third of her hind leg. She is a happy go lucky grown up sheep now, carefully watched over by her best friend Keebler. Her fiber is soft and snuggly--this would be a very fun shawl or throw to have handy for cooler nights that will be here before we want them! ha! More pictures of Molly and Keebler are on our meet the sheep pages--they live with Max the llama.

Keep an eye out for another update this week--lots of yarn and more 3 Chic Knit items and fiber of course!! Toodles!
