How I Spent My Summer Vacation ...

So ... no I did not fall off the face of the earth but spring and summer are very busy times here. Just to catch up ... here are a few new faces around the farm. This is Bob and Billy Bob:

They are my new calves and when they first came here to live they truly looked like little deer. They are a Jersey cross and I will keep them for about 18 months or so.

Blogger refuses to upload any photos again today so I will wait till tomorrow to try to catch everyone up on the farm.

On my needles I have the River Forest Gansey from Handknit Holidays. I am knitting it using Knit Picks Andean Silk ... a blend of 55% superfine alpaca. 23% silk, 22% merino in a beautiful colour called Hyacinth. halfway up the first sleeve and it looks wonderful. Also I am trying to knit up enough socks to get through the winter ... which looks like it could start as early as next week. Geesh!

My good friend Dawn has opened an Etsy shop for me ... check the side bar for link ... and I am SO excited. I love to spin and knit and am hoping to enable as many people to do that with me as I can. Come and check us out.

Every blade of grass

Under it's burden of dew

In time - each springs free.
