Summer, a time for me to rest and re-energize. This Summer for me is the start of a new job. I have worked as a dental assistant for the past 30 years. My body is no longer able to work standing on my head looking in peoples mouths all day. I have now become a receptionist. Making the same money. I love this job! I really am working hard this summer with little to no time to relax. I have carved out some time to spin and knit. That time is precious to me and I guard it intensely.
I have been carding this lovely fleece that I bought in February with some friends. We each took 1/3 of it, splitting it 3 ways. The name of the sheep is Aristine and she is a Romney. Her fleece is like a dalmatian with spots of white, grey, and black. Even though romney can be course, hers seems to be soft and beautiful as its spun. After I have spun it all my plan is to dye the yarn.

At the shearing of Aristine, we bought on the spot

Aristine spun and dyed. Not the color I'm going for.
This was just a test dye, but still love it!

It is a very pretty color.

Congrats on the new job!

Thank you Kathy. Life has been a journey these last few years. Never thought we'd be starting over with jobs at 55! God is good and has blessed us immensely. I thank him every day for that!
