We packed pretty lightly for us and took a trip to Georgia for the week. I got some knitting done on the way.
We savored a few days and then celebrated David's 10th birthday!
He asked for a birthday brownie instead of a cake for now.......Bruce makes a killer brownie from scratch!
After several days of enjoying each others company, Marsel left for a ladies retreat and I got some undivided kid time! They had been given some wool at the sheep to shawl event they attended last week and saved it for our own event. We washed the wool-dried it, picked it and then carded it.......
They thought it was fun to see the piles of wool become clouds!
We then did some dyeing with Easter egg dyes!
After drying and another run through the carder, we had our spinnable fiber!
Abigail took to it like she has been watching me her whole life.......oh, she has! The recent therapy with her left hand has given her considerable improvement in fine motor skills! She was a natural.
David had little trouble coordinating the many motions of treadling, drafting and braking to make yarn!
We had a wonderful visit as always and enjoyed an added bonus of eating Bruce's Chicago-style pizza, also from scratch! We were spoiled!
