First Overshot Project

With all the cold and snow and lots of time indoors, I've tackled my first over shot project. I love weaving with my hand spun yarn and this skein although mill spun using my sheep's wool, was naturally dyed with indigo. The warp was a 10/2 unmercerized cotton. I don't think I made any mistakes. 5 of my 6 ewes have lambed and my first dairy goat is due next week. Fresh goat milk sounds so good. I can make kefir and soft cheeses once more.
