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.
