Knitters Rock Mo Rocca's World

Lamb count is at 4 right now.......all girls. Yay! The ewe that was due on Thursday finally delivered at 5 am on Friday morning. I don't usually have night time deliveries, but there was a complication with this one and it took a while to get things sorted out. I was up all night and finally fell into bed at 5:45 am. I can tell you right now, I hope not to repeat that.

The alpaca count has also risen to four. Friday I hooked up the livestock trailer and drove to Lindy's (click the link on the side bar to see some of Lindy's beautiful farm and animals) to pick up our newest addition to our little herd of fiber boys. This boy's fancy name is Flashpoint and he has gorgeous fiber and a sweet disposition.

If you didn't see CBS Sunday Morning yesterday, you need to watch it now. Go to their website and click on Mo Rocca's piece on knitting. For once, just once, we knitters didn't come off as a bunch of grandmothers in our rocking chairs (not that there's anything wrong with being a grandmother in a rocking chair----I am a grandma and I do sit in rocking chairs occasionally!) Mo Rocca now knows that knitters are a force to be reckoned with and that they are gracious and generous when they put you in your place.

Edited to add: Anyone else having trouble with Blogger today? I had links to the above references and tried many times to make sure they were exactly as they should be, but Blogger would not let them work. It also would not let me post pictures, but I went through Firefox to get that done. I'm ready to have a melt-down here! It is difficult enough for someone like me to even get a blog post done, but when things don't work as they should...then I'm lost!


  1. My pictures would not post today, either. momyss

  2. I would never have seen the Mo Rocca piece. Thanks for pinting it out.
