Back from the Island

Langley was wonderful, and I actually got quite a bit done-

Three new skeins:


About 5 inches of progress on The Shepherd’s vest:


Found a really cool pattern at Knitty Purls, the local yarn store, and managed to get a start on it-


I also took along a couple of skeins of thick and cushy yarns I’d spun on Hank- thinking I’d do a cowl,,, but the cowl had other plans, and started turning into a poncho. So there you go-


But I’m happy to be back home now with the man and the critters.


It’s the weekend, and the sun is shining.


And I’m hangin’ with my sheeps. 🙂


Have a good week!

      yeah, that’s kind of what I’m thinking too. I’m considering shearing a couple of the longer ones in Sept. Not sure yet. Will see how it goes-

    You all and your coal black yarn. Beautiful.

      Thanks- I love the black too. I think sometimes that I should have gotten Chone’s brother as well. He’s the only little guy I got as a single. And I don’t even know why- I guess I just like odd numbers 🙂

    Luv those yarns, especially the black one.
    What an amazing view you have Denise. Your full fleeced sheepjes look healthy and happy 🙂

      Thanks Jody. It’s beautiful here when the sun is out. We haven’t seen as much of it as we’d like this summer!
