Dye Day!! New colors nice freinds to talk to and Ian makes and serves lunch! If you ever want to do a dye day go to Sharons. Sharon, Becky and I spent Saturday enjoying a wonderful warm Nevada spring day dyeing roving and yarn in Sharons garage. No wind can't beat that. This is the roving, BFL, after it was rinsed. The knitted piece is a "blank" we had lessons on how to use a knitting machine at a guild meeting. I ran a double strand of alpaca yarn and knitted a long piece. Now that is's dyed when I pull it apart I'll have two balls of matching yarn for socks. The same roving and the yarn dried and fluffed out. Too pastel for me but pretty colors are all nice. Colors are not blended very well next time more vinegar in the soaking bucket!!
Last week I received a call from my vet Dustin. He said with the blood and the necropcy there was no "definitive" answers! I will get a fax of these reports, like I can read them, but I'll have copys for other people. Plus I have copys of another ladys animals necropcys whose lambs did this also. Can't wait to compair them. I'm calling around and talked to the breeders of my ram and the breeder of a ewe I purchased that had a baby with the "sick brain" disease. We are researching pedigrees of all animals involved. There is at least one blind lamb from my rams father that was found so far.
Loving this weather!
