Today was the scheduled day for the shearer to come do the pregnant ewes, since we are only about two weeks away from the first lambing due dates. Thank goodness I had second thoughts about the weather and rescheduled for next weekend. Though the daffodils are pushing up through the dirt and will be blooming soon, we had snow on the ground again this morning. I'm hoping the forecasters are right and that we will have a warm up this week.
I'm still on the finishing track around here. This mitered square shawl has been languishing for many months, but was finally completed last week. It's a free pattern from here. (They have a fantastic selection of freebies.) In spite of the fact that I abandoned it for many months, it was an enjoyable experience. I love knitting miters. There was just enough going on to keep my interest. I used Noro Kuyreyon, color 214 and, for better or worse, I didn't even attempt to plan how the colors would work out. This will most likely become my "house shawl"----one I use for watching television and knitting or reading in bed after the furnace has cooled down for the night.
Hope you are having a great Sunday afternoon. I've got a cozy fire going and some knitting waiting for my attention.
This is beautiful! I love it!ReplyDelete
Your shawl is lovely. I, too, like the mitered knitting or, as it's known around here, Domino knitting. Hope you don't get too much snow.ReplyDelete
Our minister asked Sunday if I would be willing to talk one day about sheep - to try to dispel the image that sheep are dumb, that being a sheep was bad... Of course my first response was "So you'd like me to spend a few hours listing all the times I've been outsmarted by sheep?" You completely understand ;-).ReplyDelete
Wow, I love all of your little knits and the shawl is beautiful, I love Noro. Doesn't it feel so good to finish things?ReplyDelete
It is so great to see your animals. How interesting that must be to live with all of those creatures around. Thanks for sharing.
I'm with you on looking forward to a little green sprouting up. It was so cold today, maybe 20 degrees or so.
