THE OLD GIRLS


My sheep are getting old. They are contented. They are trusting. They've never been
threatened, cold, wet or hungry. They have never been sorted through and selected to be sold or to be marketed. They have never been separated from one another or from their young.
They have come and, for years, they have stayed. A comfortable little group.
Not conventional, I know, but it fits me and I think it fits my girls as well.

FROM ROAD TRIP TO RUG


This weekend we spent a day out on one of our last Fall road trips.
Here is some of our surrounding scenery. Aren't we lucky?

I have long said that I would create a rug using one of the yarn bundles that we make in the shop ( for the purpose of knitting a lap blanket). ... this year I'm giving it a go!
When I got home I chose a lap blanket kit to hook rather than knit.
The hooking will be free-form with these beautiful Fall images in mind.

ADDING COLOUR

This is a month of colour. It is everywhere and it is undeniable.
October fills my head with colour combinations and fills my days with dye baths.
