Summer is here, off and on. One day 85 degrees, next day 69. But a little rain once in a while keeps everything green and fresh. I really don't mind. My flower garden was looking so good but now is getting a little tired. The purple flowers at the top of the page are Campanula, this pink one is called Poor Man's Orchid. They are tiny, about the size of a 50 cent piece, the stalks grow to about 5 feet tall. Anyone want any? They are very prolific.
Finally got a picture of the black alpaca / green firestar, but its not a very good one. It is hard to get a good picture of black anything. I finally ended up putting it in a sunny window. Haven't started spinning it yet and hope to get about another 3 ounces blended. Maybe I can put in on the Etsy shop.
I did get some beautiful soft light beige merino and blended it with super soft cashmere. Both these were through the fiber club I joined with Paradise Fibers. It is incredibly soft and spun thick and thin. The cashmere made the merino top just a little bumpy, so not too much variation. It would make a wonderful scarf, mittens, socks ... just about anything next to the skin. I will post a picture next time.
