Meet "Maple Leaf" and "Mammy"

On the left, "Maple Leaf," 2.8 ounces of absolutely gorgeous red-ish, rust-ish, orange-ish, gold-ish, green-ish Coopworth wool.  On the right, "Mammy," 3.6 ounces of natural, local Shetland wool.  Photographed outside the back door on my "new" chair -- the first one I've brought home in a long while (there was a time it seemed I didn't come home without dragging a chair along with me) and, honestly, the whole family loves it.

Among the herbs (that I've yet to plant) -- some mint, oregano, sage, thyme, something else, and an onion.

This would be a good time for smell-o-vision -- or, even better, feel-o-vision.  Sure, the herbs smell great, but it's the yarn!  I can't leave that little ball of Shetland alone, it smells so wonderful and feels so soft and rich!  I'll be making simple knit shawls from these.

Photographed on the old, oft-repaired front porch chair.  This is the wool I brought home from Saturday's market -- from Wheely Wooly Farm.  I want to go visit the farm and hug some sheep!
