The neighbor decided to try for a third cutting, and mowed the hayfield yesterday. The leaf is sitting atop the mowed grass, not that you can really tell. We are forecast for a string of warmish (mid to high 70's) weather, so the hope is it will dry down ok. There are two rows by the tree line that are always difficult to get dry. They end up in the shadow of the trees even in mid-summer. Those I am raking up and feeding to the alpacas now.
This is the yarn I spun up at the threshing bee. It is still wet in this photo, so it will be a little lighter than shown. This skein is only 3 oz. I still have about 8 oz or so to blend up to spin. My plan is to knit a simple, sort of lacy stole with it. I say sort of lacy, because lacy might be beyond my concentration level. It will probably end up mostly stockinette or garter stitch with a few random holes here and there. It is intended as a replacement for one of the tri-shawls that went missing thanks to the post office. My check protest for the insurance claim was denied, so now I have to write an appeal. Such bull.
Mom was watching a kitten playing on Animal Planet last night. She said, "Hm, she sure is sassy." Mom only rarely speaks in full, coherent sentences anymore, so when she does, I have to write them down so I remember.
