Knitting Season

(bag and yarn by Kate Davies Designs)

I have made the most of it. 

{New to me stitches and techniques in this MKAL by Lyrical Knits. Really fun and clever}. 
{this one deserves it's own post when it's completely finished}

A few projects to get done in the next month before 

the page turns to gardening season.

But first of course, it will be shearing season.

Winter on the Farm

I love the coziness of winter.
 We are doing well through it. Fritz staying rested and warm by the fire. I knitting,
 reading and listening to books, music and podcasts.

Both of us enjoying time.

Hassie has never grown a good fleece, but she is such a sweetheart. 

The sheep prefer to spend most of their time outside, even when it is 4F as it was a or so week ago. They even sleep outside in the barnyard despite a spacious indoor stall with plenty of soft bedding.

I like to let some of the former flowers go to seed to keep the birds happy through the winter,

which can be quite pretty.

Ummm….did you get any to your stomachs there big guy?! 

The snow is gone now, but rumor is more over the weekend. Another rumor is that a few grandchildren want to come to play in that snow.
We will be happy to have them.
