Meet the newest household critter, Mr. H.S (Hand Spun) Bear.


He’s got a little bit of a shifty look,, but I think he’s pretty cute. And I love his nifty sweater. I kind of think maybe he needs a little smile… but I’m not sure. What do you think?

It’s been mighty cold (by PNW standards) here over the holidays,, and we’ve still got snow on the ground from last week!


Silly sheeps are covered in hay and have snow all over their noses


But the days have been beautiful, with blue skies and lots of sunshine-


The woollys don’t seem to mind the cold so much, as long as their water isn’t iced over and they get their treats on schedule (ivy and evergreen branches are a big hit)


Inside critters are curled up on the couch, by the woodstove, and in bed.
Wally had a thought the other day that he wanted to be a lap dog


but that didn’t last too long. Too much dog, too little lap.

Stash abatement continues- this is some dyed Romney leftovers and alpaca I just carded up


And I think I’m going to have a go at selling some of my handspun at a local shop- NW Handspun Yarns in Bellingham, so I’m getting some of my wares ready for the shelves


Hope your new year is off to a good start!

    Your spinning is so gorgeous that it’s bound to sell out fast. Cute bear!

      Thanks Michelle- I just got it packaged up tonight and all the little skeins look so official dressed up in their labels. Sure hope it’s well received. Guess you never know ’til you try, eh?

    That is one BIG lap dog!

      Yep. Heavy, too. He wasn’t there for long 🙂

    I love your bear, he is adorable.

    I had a half great dane / half saint bernard once who thought he was a lap dog. His name was Butch. He weighed more than I did. LOL

      Thanks- I’ve made a bunch of those little bears, and each one turns out a little different. They’re fun to knit, and make good baby gifts-

    Your yarns are beautiful. I’m glad I’m not close to that shop ;-).

    The sheep look so cute. You must be getting excited about the thought of spinning wool from those guys!
    Your handspun is lovely and I am sure it will sell. I have been selling my handspun at my LYS for over 3 years now 🙂

      Thanks- I am getting pretty excited about spinning their wool- with as much hay and stuff as these guys get into, I’m probably in for a lot of combing,, but that’s ok. I like the prep as much as anything-
