Advancing while Retreating
I was away at camp this weekend.
Well, not exactly camp, but a crafting retreat- in Langley, WA.
Langley is a really neat little laid-back place down on the south end of Whidbey Island.
And this time of year it is really gorgeous with the lilacs, dogwoods and wisteria blooming everywhere you look.
Sorry, I didn’t really think to get any pictures of all that stuff.
But they also have Shetlands down there!
Yes indeed. I do have pictures of them! (of course)
And Wendy Sundquist, who keeps her sheep just outside town was kind enough to let me visit Saturday morning-
Here are some beautiful sunny morning shots of her girls-
That’s Butterscotch. She’s the love-bug of the flock. Comes up for scratches and digs in your pocket for alfalfa pellets. Very sweet sheep.
The other girls were a little more suspicious and standoff-ish.
Was a great way to spend some of Saturday morning!
Then I spend a good part of the day finishing up the gradient sweater.
Here it is posing in the nice little park area where I’d planted myself to work in the sunshine.
and reclining on the lawn furniture
Will have more pics later once I do the finishing. Still have a little edging to do on the neckline, and then tucking the ends in.
Ps. Also picked out a few more lambs on my way down to Whidbey Island on Friday afternoon! They are currently known as Homer, Bart and Bo at Schoonover Farm. Not sure if the names will stick,, but I’m awfully excited about the little guys!
