Hi everyone! The week is half over!
Brian & I have been busy.
Brian has been helping with shearing out in WI. He is having a good time, sheared a couple alpacas (yesterday they were rained out), and got to chat with Kinney Valley's vet as well. He has also fallen in love with a clipper. I hope to purchase it for him when he gets home so he can use it when he shears our alpacas in a few weeks.
I've been felting soap. I felted 9 bars yesterday, and will have another 4 done tonight. I've got the process down to about 15-20 min per bar, and they are looking pretty good! Most of them will be brown or a heathered brown -- that's because our alpacas are brown and rose grey! (I've also gone to work, and have gone out to the farm and put drops in Lars' eyes. He had a bout of 'goopy eye', but he has recovered quite nicely!)
Brian comes back tomorrow, which is good because I'll need more fiber carded for the soap! (Oh, and the cats & I miss him as well).
Until next time!
