Life Story

21 Nov

“To see that your life is a story while you’re in the middle

of living it may be a help to living it well.   It’s unwise, though,

to think you know how it’s going to go, or how it’s going to

end.  That’s to be known only when it’s over.”

-Ursula Le Guin in Gifts, p.15

Three Skeins

21 Nov

John and Joel helped me choose the colors and participated in dying these three skeins.  The yarn is Lamb ‘O Lakes, 8 ounce skeins, about 750 yards per pound.

What, never heard of it?  The hand picked fleeces were from a 500+ Finn-Dorset flock my husband shepherded.  They were sent to be spun in Vermont back in the ’80’s for the business a friend and I ran for ten years called : Lamb O’Lakes.  I hand-dyed all theyarn.  We made one-of-a-kind things before it was popular to do so.  We had a knitting machine that I learned to use.  I used to solve knitting dilemmas in my dreams.
