Any good storyteller could spin a fine yarn around here.

Good composition using the machine and the colorful pieces produced.

greetings

You'll have to explain (I hope) the size of the material. I know it's not skeins of yarn, but at what step of the process produces those large pieces. Putting the wheel at the left of the shelves is an artful composition.

Excellent composition, Brattcat!

Didn't know sheep were so full of colors! I've only ever seen white, black, and some brown ones.

You and Birdman always have pithy comments, as interesting as the photos . . .did brattcat select any yarn?

Virginia said...

Oh I would have been drooling over that wool myself. Good one!

This is picture perrfect. I always enjoy Birdman's witty chirps as well.

Harrisville NH has moved up on my New England "must see" list. I love being in this time warp with you. Thanks, Brattcat.

Many years ago (and I do mean many), I remember seeing an ad in a magazine for a large provider of wool and the scene in the ad was a herd of sheep and each animal was a different bright color and some were plaid and some patterned. I can't believe I remember that ad, but it stuck with me for some reason.

Love it and I love Birdman's comment. clever.
I just got a drop spindle and now need to find someone to fix my wheel and instruct me on how to use it. HMmmmm MB

Don't try and pull the wool over my eyes...I know sheep don't come in rainbow colors! Haha!

Too bad the sheep don't come in those colors in the field. Wouldn't that be a sight!?

Magpie said...

Look at those beautiful colors! Did you buy anything?

J Bar said...

Very colourful.

Randy said...

Wonderful colors! Nice photo.

Bob Crowe said...

Your commenters could create some terrible puns about you telling us a yarn, but they should resist the impulse.

VP said...

I'd love to be there and see that wonderful wool. Such glorious colours.

Love those bright colors! Every night, my girls ask for "mixed-up baa baa black sheep" in which we make up silly things other than wool in the bags. It's one of my favorite parts of the day.
