What's going on around here is not much.......and a lot. There has been very little knitting going on lately. It's not that it's been too hot. I don't believe that stuff about not knitting in the summer because of the heat. That's what air conditioning is made for, in my opinion. It's been a matter of time. Tending puny lambs, mowing and gardening seem to have taken up most of my time.
The lambs are sooo much better. After their first round of Levamisole, they bounced back quickly and are eating and gaining weight again. They look really good now, which is a big relief. The mowing has slowed down considerably because we have had very little rain. We seem to be in the magic dry spot right now because there are farms just down the road from us with lush green grass. Thankfully, the temperature has cooled down and the humidity is much, much lower this week. So, for however long it lasts, we're enjoying it.

So, back to the knitting. While I have many projects on the needles, these little slippers are about the only thing I've finished in weeks. I stumbled upon them on Ravelry ( you know, that black hole that's so easy to fall down ) and thought, if there are that many knitters making them, they must be good. They are fun to knit and if you spend some time on Ravelry looking at all the different versions, you can tell they are easy to reinterpret to suit your own personal style. I think mine are calling out for some little knitted flowers, ala Kristin Nicholas.
p.s. Those of you wondering why there are no lambs, chickens, cats and peafowl on the lamb-cam right now---we are off-the-air for a little while. We will be switching servers soon and then be back up and running. Honestly, you're not missing much at the moment. The lambs are only coming in at night to eat grain and then I'm making them go back outside. Next up on the to-do list is using Mike's new Bobcat to clean out the barn and put down new gravel. ( And, I'm very excited about that. What does that tell you about me ? )
