I finished processing a whole fleece!

This evening I carded up the last 3 ounces of dark grey fleece from my Coopworth lamb fleece! This leaves me with 11 ounces to spin, then I'll have done a whole fleece, all by myself!! This is a first for me!

(whoa, enough with the exclamation points already)

Here's the last of it on my Strauch petite carder. I purchased this fleece from Carol Wagner of Hidden Valley Woolen Mill at the Shepherds Harvest festival in May 2005. I realize this is a long time, but I didn't buy the carder til fall '06, and didn't take a class on drum carding til May '07. I have been motivated to finish this since I came back from SOAR.

In other real life events, Ben was home for a short break from college. He left for school this evening. It looks like the dogs will miss him...

I know we will.

Congrats! I can't imagine processing so much fleece. Any dreams for the final outcome?
