Fiber Arts Friday: Recovered from Dog Saliva

Now that's a headline I never thought I would write.  lol.

If you recall, our very lovely and wonderful LGD's (Livestock Guardian Dogs) hatched a plan and successfully executed a llama-silk roving heist a couple of weeks ago.


Some bits were definitely felted, but most of the roving was usable.




The yarn has now had a bath, so any remnant dog saliva should be long gone.  ;-)


131 yards, 2 ounces

Happy Fiber Arts Friday.

So glad you were able to rescue it - it looks lovely. Know what you're going to make with it?

Somewhere I read dog saliva cures cancer (oh did I just make that up?)... Glad you were able to recover some of the roving, the yarn looks great!

Another hatched plan foiled. :)

The yarn turned out super!

Kathryn Ray said...

Thanks everyone. :-)

@Claire - I absolutely know what I'm going to make with it, but I'm not ready to share. ;-)

@Vivian - you crack me up.

Better watch 'em. You know they get smarter every time they're foiled. Well done on the recovery. If it feels anything like it looks, then I hope you make something to wear close to your face. It's beautiful.

Kathryn Ray said...

@Lily - you are absolutely correct. They tried to foil me again for the next several nights. I'm feeling smart right now, but they'll get me. Sooner or later, they'll get me. ;-)

You are persistent! Glad you were able to save the fiber for spinning. You should knit a little dog out of the yarn ;-)

Hey Kathryn, Thank you for stopping by my blog and saying hello. I just tag my Ravelry favorites...socks, hat, sweater, etc. That way I can go to the list to the left of the pictures in my Favs and click on what I want to look for, socks, hats, sweaters, etc. Makes it much easier than scrolling down through 500+ Favorites. I hope you have a great week.

Kathryn Ray said...

@WWG - good idea

@AllyB - thanks for the info. :-)

Hey and another blog I read from Australia, her cousin won a gold at the Paralympics and broke a world record....
