We went sheep shearing today (my kids, my friend Barbora (she's not in the picture) and her girls).

The kids got to feed some lambs.

We watched some sheep get shorn, although this one didn't want to come.......

Eli wrote lots of notes so that he can do a power point presentation for his classroom (because he wants to).

and............ I might have bought some fleece (a South African Meat Merino named Victoria... pictured above as the stubborn sheep)........

even though I wasn't going to (I know, I know.... Even *I* didn't believe myself). Thankfully, Tamara agreed to split the fleece with me (she wasn't going to buy fleece either).


  1. Hmmm...the two of you going to shearing and NOT buying fleece?!? That's like me going to a Starbucks Knit Night and NOT getting a coffee!!! Crazy talk!!! I'm glad you guys had a good time!!

  2. Wow, where didyou go to do this??

  3. Details were on the Make One yarnies forum on Ravelry. There is another sheep shearing next Saturday as well.

  4. What a cool experience! And I can't imagine you walking away without fleece! It just doesn't seem right!!!

  5. Tell that to the husbeasts when there is already half a basement full of fleece!
