Triangle Shawl

Finally finished it after having borrowed the loom months ago. Once I got at it, it only took a couple of days. Used wool from my sheep that was sent out to be made into yarn. It will be good to wear as an everyday shawl.

New Additions

This morning while feeding the sheep ouside, I was startled to hear some human like baby cries. I turned to see Angora Goat, Holly, with twins at her side. A bouncing baby boy at 5# 12 oz. ( Houdini ) and his little sister, Heather, who weighed in at 4 1/2 #. They are both colored. At first I thought the girl was white, but she's actually a very light red. Houdini is darker. At one point I thought she was pregnant, but when nothing happened,I assumed she wasn't. She's always had a huge hay belly!! And since I just got her back in June after her being gone for a year I was clueless.

Sugar River Spinner's Monthly Meeting

We had a total of 17 people today for the monthly meeting. It was a great time with terrific friends and fellow spinners. Many brought food to go with what I furnished so we all had plenty to eat. Some brought knitting, hand stitching, etc.

My good friend, Candy, brought me a large sheep statue. I love it!! It happened to be one that I had taken to a previous Sugar River Spinning Xmas party as a gift & she was the winner. Knowing how much I liked it she brought her back to me. She's so thoughtful!!

Shetland/ Icelandic Ram Lamb

My little boy Casper, went to a new home last night. He'll be living in Henniker doing breeding, so he should be happy!!. I get to have his fleece after shearing so that's a plus (like I need more fiber!!) He was born April 1st, 2008 and is black with white shading on his sides and two little white marks under his eyes that look like tears.
