So this "memory" just showed up on my phone (?!?).  I don't know how these happen (and probably don't want to know :-o), but this is so cute I couldn't resist sharing.  It's from the afternoon I sat out in the field knitting on the Baaxter sweater.  The clip of Kate in the middle...just keeping it classy here at Equinox ;-D.

I like that there is a picture of the sweater at the end.  I'm not happy with it and need to frog it and start over, but there's more to that story and I am proud that I made it.  Might be an Iknitarod re-knit.

Face Smashing

This is a Saint Tim thing and it's not really what it sounds like. Well, it is...but in a way that all the animals around here are addicted to.  I work my butt off taking care of them and make sure they have food, clean water and bedding and cookies...and Tim's the one everyone wants to see come to the barn.  Sigh...

How Many Sheep Does It Take To Knit A Sweater?

Baaxter's pretty sure he knows the answer to that question.

You know that old joke...

...where the punch line is "I didn't even know sheep could knit!"

They can't.

Well, we had snow yesterday and today it all melted and warmed up enough that I could knit outside this afternoon.  Baaxter "helped".  I'm ready to start the collar tomorrow, which means the end is in sight.  It's been a fun, easy knit and so many friends are knitting Carbeth sweaters that it's felt like a virtual knitting party :-).

It was actually a little darker than this when I took these off the back porch this evening.  There was obviously something to be worried about or they wouldn't have been out there in the first place, but it's comforting to be in the middle of cooking dinner, know something is going on, but not having to stop to even worry about it.

And that's why we all sleep secure at night.

Pine Party

We had a small ice storm last week and some pine branches came down in the yard and side field.  This is also known as a sheep party!
