I AM going to do it this time.
I will not fail. No matter how long it takes!
I responded to a Craig's List posting for llama fiber
not more than 5 minutes from my house,
somewhere I pass all the time.
I saw the posting early in the morning and e-mailed my reply
indicating if she did not have a buyer, I would be interested.
I got an email reply right away and she sounds like my
kind of person! As it turns out she runs the rescue center
up the road and it was shearing time. Whoever had
indicated they wanted the fiber never got back to her
so it was up for grabs. As we talked on the phone,
and found we have very similar opinions on things,
she told me the fiber was mine for the asking.
She just wanted someone to have it that would actually
try to do something with it.
And I will.
I was working from home so I was on the clock,
unable to run out and pick it up before she was leaving;
however, my husband returned just in time for me to send him
and again, literally 5 minutes away!
I had NO IDEA it would be this much.
I am thrilled.
If I can make this work, I'll make her a scarf!
This is my spinning wheel.
Hopefully it will be spinning it's little heart out
after I've finished cleaning and carding the fiber.
As it turns out I found where the owner of the center went to school-
William Woods College (now University) in Fulton, MO.
That's my school too!!! We're both Woodsies.
It has an amazing equestrian science program.
