Yarn Along - Maisie Gets A Hair Cut

"I just don't know why this stuff keeps happening to me [every year]!"

I think she does actually, but doesn't it look like that's what she's saying (always ;-)?  Shearer extraordinaire Bill Haudenschield once again did me and Maisie a huge favor by shearing her standing up.  This is hard to do with any sheep, but one as short as's back breaking.  Thank you, Bill!  

And thank you, Karen, for being the brave one to hold her so I could take some pictures.  She looks fairly calm here as they got started, but those teeth were a-chompin'!  

Here's a short video, just for fun.  Hopefully my hillbilly speakin' won't break your computer.  Our new shearing assistant asked why we were shearing her standing up after shearing the others sitting down.  I answered her without thinking it would be on the video.  Sigh...

The first place finisher for the Iditarod crossed under the Burled Arch this morning, but many mushers are still on the trail. I, too, am still out on the Iknitarod Trail, but have hit a major snafu and things look pretty hopeless for a Red Lantern finish this year.   I'm going to keep knitting though as you never know.

I finished A Man Called Ove and just loved it.  Now I'm listening to another one of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency stories.  They are always winners :-).
