Road Trip at Knitting Camp
Tuesday, we hit to road to Catoctin Creek Farm in Jefferson to visit with Jean Galey and her Romney sheep.
She also showed us her garden that included herbs, flowers, and plants for making wool dying colors.
The ewe lambs seemed pretty big for being just 5 months old.
Anna and Olivia tried to get the lambs close enough to touch with some food. The lambs didn't cooperate.
Anna and Olivia got a lesson in carding wool and spinning with a cranky spinner and made some yarn that they got to take home. Nana found a lovey Romney wool/cashmere blend in laceweight that needed to come home with her.
