Sing Along


Sung to the tune of "The Song That Never Ends"

This is the fleece that never ends
It just goes on and on my friend




Some asshat started carding it, not knowing what it was
And now she'll keep on carding it forever, just because




This is the fleece that never ends ...

Repeat, ad nauseum.

This is my first fleece. The first.

I made the clownbarf with it.




I used some in the neutral and also in the purple stuff I spun.




I used it in the stuff I dyed for Juno, and Oliver's Wool (which is on the drum carder outside as we speak) and the wool for Rachael are 100% Cheviot.

I carded up a bunch of plain batts, ready to be spun.




You'd think I should be getting close to the end of this first one, right? You'd think that at least the stuff in the green bin would be all of it, and there wouldn't be any left in the bin outside, still waiting to be washed.

Right?




Wrong.

This reminds me of Stephanie's wool for Joe's gansey. I think she said she'd packed all of the fibre into a big Rubbermaid tub and kept taking some out and spinning and spinning. So far she's spun about a thousand metres, and the tub is still full.

Clearly, wool is evil, and enchanted in some manner.

I would like at this point to note that I have eight or nine more entire fleeces, plus the baby Cheviot that I have still got to card (at least the baby one is washed).

My husband better start liking the smell of sheepshit right quick.

Send beer.

Comments:
On the plus side, you don't have to spend your beer money on wool.
 
Is the beer for you or to make your husband more amenable to the smell of dirty wool?
 
The beer's for me. I'm the one who's washing nine sheep, remember?
 
Does your entire house smell like sheep yet? Mine does (or so I've been told.)
 
How can he not like the smell of sheep shit. It is organic! Natural! It means that wool is in the house! What's not to like?
Anyway, there's not *so* much left - I mean, that's a visibly finite amount, right? And only 9 more to go.....
The clownbarf cracks me up.
 
You could very well make your own Barf series.
Firemen Barf ~ in all shades of red
Blue Men Group Barf ~ all blues
Barbie Barf ~ all pinks
Well you get the idea.
:)
