Frosted Mini Sheeps

(they’re not so “mini” anymore, but I couldn’t resist)

Yep, it’s that time of year again.
Sheeps’ water freezing overnight and all.

But the boys don’t seem to be feeling the chill.

They were out and about this morning in the crisp sunshine, nice and toasty underneath their frosty fleeces.

I just love Felix’s freckles.

Does anyone else think that Edgar kind of looks like he’s going for a Bret Boone surfer-guy thing with the sun-bleached tips?

Just sayin’.

Shadow is coming along nicely

So far so good. Hoping to have the knitting done by next post!

And I’ve got about 350 yards of Chone/Spike yarn worked up, so I can get a start on the next sweater project without delay-

Feels good to have a plan 🙂

    Nice work on the Shadow… love the knit pattern. The Chone/Spike yarn is beautiful. What a lovely dark charcoal color this is.

    Those sheep faces are so wonderful! I could look at them forever.

    I’m always impressed with how well they handle the cold weather. Great shots of the boys!

    Your shadow sweater is going to be beautiful! I’m working on my very first sweater. Actually, the knitting is done and I just have to sew it together…

    Wish me luck!

      Ah, yes. The sewing. I’m facing that for the the first time right now. Until this sweater I was always able to avoid that part. Usually I’m all about doing things seamlessly in the round.

    Shadow is coming along FABULOUSLY!

    You are such a productive spinner. Now that my “summer of hot flashes” is over, knitting a sweater actually appeals to me — if I can ever spin that much yarn!

      Thanks Michelle. Sure seems like you make pretty good time on the little minispinner- I’m sure that you could have a sweaters-worth in no time!

        Maybe I could if I weren’t homeschooling, but that and just being “Mom” dominates my waking hours….

    That dark gray is gorgeous!
