We found a stray chicken in the street behind our house.
We eventually caught her, not easy because she was quite a good flyer. I am now learning about chickens and planning a chicken coop. Was amazing when
the chicken after two weeks suddenly decided to lay a daily egg.
Have also been busy learning to knit. Thought I should
as a hommage to fibers and wool.
Made a pair of socks, not perfect, but warm and cozy.

The most exclusive wool...
This summer in Colorado I visited a store that was selling what was basically wool from the armpits of baby
buffalo. Extremely soft and expensive.
On the web I now found the most exclusive wool:
from the arctic muskox, the Qiviuk (good scrabble word!).
It does not shrink, and can not be used for felting, however.
Really like this site and hope to see the exhibit:
It's the story of Angela Hazeltine Pozzi and her
art made from trash from the ocean.
We were off on a road trip for 3 weeks (Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Great Basin. Yosemite...amazing nature),
came home and were watering raspberry bushes when
we discovered four wet kittens, so it is quite busy right now. For more on the kittens, go to:
