I have had fiber sheep at several times in my livestock/spinning fiber art life but after the last flock left and years later after I had either used up or gifted others with all that Romney goodness I decided at this stage of my life it may be prudent to let others do the production and I can go to Etsy and just drool and push a button and partake in their talents and hard work . It also enabled me to a wider variety of product with many breeds to choose from and some bling man made on occasion. It also gave me another opportunity to support small family farms. Which I have been known to become wickedly opinionated about at times.
So while cruising Etsy one day I tripped over a farm girl named Janet Garman at Timber Creek Farm. An enthusiastic supporter of and educated in Ag. You can find her blog on the sidebar in blogs I follow or just click on this https://timbercreekfarmer.com/ And I ordered some skeins from her.
I made two pair of fingerless mitts one for myself and one for a dear friend who happens to be one of my go to veterinarians. They are soft, warm and yummy. Guaranteed to make you hands smile on 28 degree mornings like we had today. I also wove my hubby a scarf from a Romney Merino blend which I haven't been able to get a photo of yet . And I love her logo and all the cuteness she uses to make you remember her
As if all she has done and plans to do isn't enough she is also a published author and has articles in the latest issue of one of my favorite publications Countryside magazine's.
There are two shirts the beige is a medium regular cut and the pink is a ladies cut sleeve in a large.
If you are interested in winning one of these fun shirts for yourself or to gift your favorite fiber fanatic please leave a comment and the shirt of your choice. Drawing will be held on Sunday February 18th and announced on Monday the 19th. All entries will receive a number as they are posted and numbers will be used in the drawing out of the hat. Yes a knitted hat lol.
