Last week on Ravelry, I noticed a little conversation on the Michigan Fiber Festival group about whether or not copies of the festival's Fiberline magazine had been taken to the yarn shop near me.
I am about in the middle between Marr Haven Wool Farm, where the magazines were, and Needle in a Haystack down in South Haven, so I volunteered to pick them up and run them into town.
Moments after I parked and got out of my car, Barb and Gene Marr's Merino Rambouillet sheep decided to move from the barn way out into the field. But I zoomed in on them and took their pictures anyway.
Don't they look sleek, all sheared for the summer heat we're having?
And this is the shop, lots of yarn mule-spun from the sheep, locker-hooking kits, felting supplies, and other fiber-y things. The picture is clickable, for a better view.
I had a great time talking with Barb about sheep and the fiber festival and the crazy weather we've been having. Friday was my favorite weather, mostly overcast and not so hot, and the sheep liked it, too.
By Sunday, it was so hot the baby robins were panting.
Monday it hit 89 F (32 C) here. In May. In MAY!
And today, I looked out at the nest and saw this: "Hey! Where'd everybody go?"
I would have posted earlier, but our power was out from 9:30 am until about 2 pm.
