day #2 of after surgery,

and I stayed home today after all. 'tP' was so restless during the night that I kept awaking when he moved or groaned. I was so tired this morning that I just called in for another day off to help with him. There is still a lot of pain and the drugs keep him sleeping most of the time anyway. So, I've been doing things around the house after I slept in a bit, too.

Here are some pictures of that wool and some of the spinning I've done with it, too. I got as close as I was able.
What do you all think?

AHA most likely is Romney - to quote the Wikipedia entry: "The sheer number of Romney ewes and lambs in New Zealand make the breed not only the biggest input by tonnage to overseas and domestic wool trade.", would suggest that this is most likely what I got.
