Visit to a woolen mill

Yesterday, Bill (WJBDineen) and I visited Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill outside of Mt. Horeb, WI (near Madison, WI). They do mostly custom batches.

Felted Cat Bed

I just finished this for our gang. It was a fairly quick knit, finished it in about 6 hours. So far Tippy has dominated it, Guess I'll have to make more.
