SOAR homework (brought to you by Ellenspns)

Coopworth:

-Breed by Professor Coop in New Zeland in the 50s and 60s

-cross between a Romney and Border Leicester for it’s fleece and good meat production

-Ewe’s are fertile, good mothers, and most can raise twin lambs without assistance

-Finer fleece can be used for outer garments and stronger fleece are used for carpets

-spun fine well, but it was a more rough ridged yarn. i preferred it as low spun long draw thick singles. it allowed the fluff to soften the yarn. spun from the fold easily as well.

Favorite Thing:

Giambotta (Vegetable Stew)

crock pot version of Rachael Ray’s

-3 cloves garlic chopped
- 1-2 onions chopped (i didn’t have any, so i used 2-3 tbs onion powder mixed with some olive oil to make a paste)

-5 red potatoes, washed and chopped

-1 eggplant

-1 zucchini

-1 yellow squash

-1 green pepper

-1 red pepper

-1-2 tbs basil

-1/2 box of chicken stock (low sodium, cause it’s good for ya)

- 2 28oz cans fire roasted tomatoes (or used diced tomatoes, and add some liquid smoke to taste..that roasted flavor is what makes this stew go from okay, to AMAZING!)

-salt and pepper

add first 10 ingredients (all washed and chopped into larger bite size pieces) in order into your crock pot. you’re layering things up according to thickness . put it on high, and cook for 2-3 hours. give it a stir, turn it to low, and add the tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper to taste. cook on low for 1 more hour.

serve it with some nice cheese grated over the top and a piece of crusty bread. freezes and reheats well.

tastes vary, and so do the veggies available, so mix it up! if you like broccoli a lot? throw it in there!

SOAR Homework (sponsored by ellenspns):

Corriedale:

-New Zealand’s first breeding program started in 1868

-long long staple lengths, easy for beginners to spin

-nice even deep crimps

-soft wool, okay for next to skin

-grows when washed, so yarn will thicken

-felts easily, so good for handfelting as well

spins from the fold, spins fine, and spins thick easily. i’m spinning superfine corriedale. it’s REALLY fine and very soft. it does have some noils, but fine fleece sometimes have that (i think it adds to the character).

Charity Blanket Update!

I just thought I would take a moment and share our progress on the charity blankets.   First off, i want to say thank you again to all that volunteer. if you are interested in volunteering for the next round, you can contact me through ravelry or post your interest in the charity group threads. I’ll probably organize another sign up once these blankets are finished.

but for now, LOOKIE LOOKIE!!!!!!
