I have gotten so behind in blogging.
But, I wanted to document a fabulous field trip the pups and I went on...
We started out driving to Sally Fox's farm in the Capay Valley. She developed a organic cotton that grows colored-Vreseis. I got to see at least 4 different colored cottons in several weights
and forms. I also almost left with a merino lamb. So beautiful...I am still thinkin
g of her. Her fur was a warm brown/carmel colored. Sally was very
friendly showing me her animals, cotton and sharing her ideas on spinning. She has merino
wool yarn available also. I unfortunately got so into visiting that I forgot to take photos.
Afterwards, we(the pups and I)headed towards Fort Bragg and Mendocino.
We spent a few days in Mckerricker State Park.
Awesome Camping and trails are vast and open
to bikes, children and dogs! My family's favorite State Park!
I drove down the coast and went to the Mendocino Yarn Shop. I bought a soft local
merino/alpaca roving. I 've since spun into a 2 ply lace weight(with a local Corriedale roving).
I've been knitting up a storm! Check out my Ravelry page
