hey csa members!

I got the call from the Mill today. Looks like 17 pounds of Sal, Maude, Marvin and Joseph's wool will be here soon! Everyone who subscribed will be getting a package just in time for the holidays and depending on the haul, I may open up a few more spots for new subscribers (which will be picked by a lottery if anyone is still interested). I can't wait to see what folks knit from Maude!

Jenna, if you do open up some csa spots....I definitely want to be included in the lottery or whatever you decide. Funny thing is that tonight while driving home I thought about you and wondered whether the yarn had come back from the mill yet.

Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll get to knit with some of Coldantler's yarn.

If there is a lottery I will announce it and all you need to do is comment and i have a coworker randomly select them by pointing at the screen while I roll through all the comments at break-neck speed... it's really, really, just luck who will get it.

Can you consider this my entry in to the lottery, or do I have to wait untikl you see what you have?

Jenna: I'm thrilled to hear that I'm that much closer to having some of Maud's yarn to knit with - I found a neat hat pattern on Spiderwoman's blog and gave it a dry run using Lion Brand wool blend chunky and i love the results - so will send you a picture when the yarn gets here and gets knit up. I also checked out thrummed mittens for next year's share which will include roving.

Just ran into this on Amazon. Have you read it? The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food, and Love (Hardcover)
by Kristin Kimball I think it will be another Christmas present to me.

Your a woman after my own heart, audio books while you drive. That's how I travel from Maine to NY and back. It doesn't appear to be available in anything but hardback and kindle version.

Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller is amazing and i strongly encourage you to listen to that book on tape...as is Andre Agassis book Open if you want to switch it up.

Good luck with the CSA! Have you done a "cost effective analysis" on owning 3 sheep and what you get back from wool? ...even if just for personal use? I'm tempted, but that means giving up field space that my dogs currently romp in...but if the upside out weighs that downside i might bite the bullet.

i also rent and while i'd love to be there for years to come...you never know. for you all in the sheep world, are they relatively easy to resell if need be?
