HOLY CROAK! I have to stop right this minute and tell you what I'm listening to through the window to the front yard! You ready? OHHHH ME! It's a frog! He so can't ribbet.... it's more like a croak or a flarp as DS Pixie #1 says... ahyup that's the noise alright, silly ole toady.
........ chicken with a DULL! SUPER DULL! and oh so tiny meat cleaver? DUMB BLOND! Next time DH takes the ax to work!...since he works for a grinding shop my scissors have never been so useful! Back to the chicks... so we now have 9, ones a croakadoodledoo... yup another croaker, he's trying - perhaps it comes out better with age? Time will out. Then we have three tiny chickens, one is more like a bird then a chicken, two are a bit larger but decidedly bantam sized. Last up we have the 6 possible layers who should make larger eggs... when they get up to it. Introducing:
Delaware rooster and hen
Emma and the girls
2 mutts check out that flap on the left!
Rhode Island Red
Silver Laced Wyandotte on the right.....
Hopefully next year we can get a half dozen Araucana which will lay the blue/green eggs for us.
A recent sunset by DH. Lovely isn't it?
Such a sweet lovey kitty! Who adores my knitting!
.... and MS 24 which I put away as I don't really have a lot of KAL time from other designers due to the My Bleeding Heart which I'm designing. Above on the right we have a present for my beloved Pixie,,, our middle child... he doesn't have a pair of my socks that fit which are Nice Not Rice. He's very particular with itchies and so he's getting this lovely skein of a 50/50 silk merino which is so Chris from VT. See that Chris? Is this not so you!
This is DD's Spanish Armada from MMario Knits off of Yahoo Groups. She really got into this knit and had it finished in short order. Of course she loves it!
The sunflowers were a gift from Mom and Kev last time they went shopping. The swatch on the right is The Queen Susan shawl which is knit in,,, are you sitting down? Are you ready for this? Super fine, finer then cobweb THREAD!!!! The swatch went to my good friend who loved it so much when she saw it... since I had all the necessary info out of it already... she took it to Bakersfield to be laminated as a bookmark! She's adorable and we all love her very much.
Lastly I will leave you with my BABIES! I love them and used to sing to them every time I changed their water. I now have 4 jugs (ones a mason jar) now as I have been holding all of these goodies back till after the Yarn Fairy KAL got going. Today I posted the first clue and yesterday I put up another new page for the next one which is FREE! Check out the pages above My Bleeding Heart will start on 11-5-11 and as soon as I'm done here I will be hitting the dye pots for Meldy Deep, I can't wait!!!! I might just have to use my own hand dyed even though I have long wanted to design this shawl specifically for my Kauni lace weight yarn that I bought a coons age ago. Hoping you are well and knitting like a fiend!
