Black Sheep Gathering
I popped by the Black Sheep Gathering as I am a woman on a mission. The mission: to get more wool to felt to make our Rock rug (here is a picture I stole of one from the Viva Terra Website):Tim has been needle felting the rocks, but at the workshop I learned you could put little balls of wool in the toe of a pair of tights and wash it in the machine to felt. We're going to try this with a bunch of balls in a pair of tights and see what happens. Stay tuned!
I got quite a selection of wool roving for the rocks:
And some non-rock colored stuff was also purchased:
From the top: a turquoise gradient set, a grey-to-black gradient set, and big hunk of blue yarn.
Here's a closer look at the gradient:
This one (the blues) came from a dyer in Utah, the greys from a dyer in Portland.
Also--I didn't get a picture of the six month old Suri cria but she was gorgeous. I can't wait to show you all pictures of Tiger/Lily/Shadow.
