Ah, that's much better.

Since I wasn't wonderfully happy with the braids of roving I handpainted in the last entry (or before the last entry, I should say), I decided to consider them "highly educational" and won't be posting them for sale. Instead, I'll blend 'em and spin 'em. :)

Determined to give it another go, I handpainted 2 lbs. of combed top over the weekend! Just posted the first one on Etsy...wish I didn't feel the need to write a book for every posting. Because of this, yarns (and now fibers!) take for freakin' EVER to post, and I don't have all that much time at ye olde day job to be sneaky about it.
I think the thing I'm most excited about is listing some handpainted animal-friendly fibers and rovings. They're just a joy to work with, and it's a cause I feel very passionate about. Someday...someday I'll be completely and 100% sourced from animal-friendly and humane farms. Or maybe someday I'll have my own animal-friendly farm! :) Who knows?

KK - I know!! When Dade told me he and mom were talking about buying land in Brenham, one of the first things I said was "Can I have a sheep??!??!". And then he laughed and made comments about llamas or something in his very Dade way. Well...it was worth a shot! :)

Why stop at sheep? Let's get some llamas too! So do you think they're still considering land in Brenham?? How awesome will it be when we're all there!!!!!
