I recently went to watch some UC Berkeley grad students learn to shear sheep at a nearby agro research station. My brother-in-law works there for Fish and Game and has always encouraged me to come up for the excitement. Well, this year I finally managed to do it. Now I have my own bag of sheared wool and am going to endeavor to make my own yarn. I have no idea how much yarn I will get out of this one small bag, but it will be exciting to try it!
Here's a glimpse of the day.
