Emma, our oldest couldn't resist the temptation of all the wool on the floor and not being able to touch it. She looked at me with pleading eyes and I went about showing her how to card the wool. She beamed!! When she made her first rolag she jumped for joy and wanted to know when she could start to make felt LOL!! Abby, who will be three next month was content to sit in her rocker with her lovey and her milk, she likes to admire from afar.

She looks like she knows what she's doing!
So as I go about learning all things Icelandic sheep and all things woolly, its so much more fun learning it together with my girls. Even if they never grow up to enjoy the same things I do, its nice to know they have been exposed to these little wonders in the world. Though I can bet that Emma will be asking for a set of carders instead of an I-pod for her next birthday!!! Yay!!! A mother can dream.....
