Monday morning already?

First, I want to take time out to say: "Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday DEAR Markie, Happy Birthday to you" to my dear husband who is celebrating the anniversary of his 29th Birthday today! Thank you for all you do for me and for being the love of my life and the best fiber husband on the planet! Yesterday we went to the parent's visitation at our son's school and got to see him for the first time since July. He's doing very well and keeping fit and mentally active. He looks healthy and is excelling. I'm very proud of him and the work he has done in this program, he is finally taking all his abilities and putting them to great use. He's on the drill team, chess team, is doing volunteer work, is helping the counselors and teachers, and is being an all around good person, even looking for extra things to do to help out! He's reading and getting fantastic grades too! He mentor for the program, who is his longtime scoutmaster "Mr. Charlie", is helping him out a tremendous amount and is owed credit for a lot of good influence and positives in Jon's life as well. Thank you, Mr. Charlie!
Now back to the fiber stuff...Actually since I posted last, I have been kind of busy getting ready for the NJ Harvest festival which is next weekend. I did manage to get the rest of the CVM washed, as well as some Polypay and some Mohair goat. ECCCCHHHHH! The Mohair stinks horribly! I'm going to dye it and add it to some Rambouillet fleece that's in the stash to make a sweater for me, and perhaps one for my DH, although not to be worn at the same time, don't worry! I also got a few more samples done of my own fleeces (I'm planning on doing another one or two today for the fiber survey) Top to Botton, Polypay, "Wendy" who is a BFL/Wensleydale, and CVM.
