Another Kinfolk Magazine has arrived! Have you perused its pages yet? I had the opportunity to visually capture a craft that I am very passionate about, knitting, and share it within the beautiful and wintery Volume 6!! A few of us went up North and visited a sheep farm to watch and capture the shearing process. It was such an interesting and inspiring morning – being able to see where wool fibers come from and what’s involved in gathering it up. I now have a deeper appreciate for the yarn that I work with and feel more connected to the craft. ( p.s. The sheep and the pup were best friends )
Here are some iphone out-takes from the day: A friend of mine, Jessica Comingore, tagged along to help. We spent the majority of our time laughing at how loud and absurd the sheep sound when they get worked up. The beautiful images were all taken by Young & Hungry. The farm we went to was Bearhill Farms in Norco, CA and the shearer was Fred Flory of Flory’s Sheep Shearing.
