How could I forget?
The yarn, that is! The first batch of Rambouillet was finished last week. I have 6 1/2 ounces, which gives me 2273 yards (5682 ypp if you're curious). Quite a nice 2 ply laceweight. Plus I still have something like 2 lbs of the fleeces left to process and spin. I think the rest or at least some of the rest will be spun into a fingering weight for sweater knitting. I may play with blending a little with some russet alpaca, my favorite color, and see if I don't get something amazing.
