and so is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and even Sunday right now. I'm in the throes of washing fleeces in preparation for taking this year's clip to the mill for spinning into our 2013 Sheep Dreams yarn. I've been washing non-stop for days now and still have a pile more to do. The greenhouse has been a wonderful drying facility - no more fleeces on old window screens or in the hammock or scattered about on the floor in the studio and house. Fleeces dry quickly in the greenhouse, even without the sun, which is a good thing because we have had day after day of rain lately. Finally, yesterday the clouds parted and the sun came out. Today we've had sun all day and it has shown me just how much weeding there is waiting for me in the garden. :-(

So, it's back to washing fleeces and planning for this year's edition of "Fresh from the Farm Yarn". I'm thinking worsted weight, but maybe with some special additions to the mix that will make it different from last year's version. What's your favorite weight and fiber blend?
