Welcome to 2011
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!
