Three Bags Full

So you last saw Lizzie looking like this.

Lizzie's all grown up! {DaddysTractor.com}

It seemed to me that this look was a bit overdressed for spring fashion; no one’s wearing wool this season.  It was time for a makeover.

If you were shocked, no worries.  I dropped her off at a friend’s house to be sheared while we were gone and came back the next morning to a different animal!  Although technically my biggest surprise was the bag of wool that greeted me on arrival.

As Brett says, you could fit Lizzie herself in this bag.  And there is another bag of the dirtiest wool from her backside.  (Didn’t think you need a picture of that!)  Both bags are in the garage and every time I pass them I think “Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.”  There is easily enough for the master, the dame, and the little boy down the lane, but I’m not planning to give any to them!  This is the goal.

Aside from what’s in the picture being bamboo and silk, I’m hoping to turn my bags of wool into balls of yarn.

While my kid’s take ice skating lessons on Wednesdays I’ve been learning to crochet from some of the other moms.

(And for the sake of keeping it real, here is what most of my photos look like.)

    awesome! I have a few friends that have spun their own wool and used it for knitting or crocheting projects. I can’t wait to see what you create!
