He was a gift from the first mate's parents; they picked him up in Colorado.
(That "mountain" he's climbing is the handspun I finished/made during this year's Tour de Fleece, by the way.)
I also recently kettle-dyed a sample of Gulf Coast fleece that came from my very own home state, Florida, but which went for a visit to Laura of Dew Dance Farm before it came to me. I dyed it an appropriately oceany color (it's almost like I don't know there are other colors ;)) and am now pondering what to spin it into. Voila, le Gulf Coast!
Hope you've all been up to some summery fun — I've been working on a few surprises, myself. ;D
