More Fiber Stuff

27 Feb

It has been crazy with the weather and taking care of Tony and everything else, but I do try to do something fun and relaxing after I get done with all my work for the day.

That might be knitting.  I’m kind of stuck on dish cloths.

Now I just need to find a new farmer’s market to take all these dish cloths to sell.

I did also manage to sneak in making another hat.  The yarn beside it will be my next hat.  This one actually fits an adult!

Because so much is going on, this post keeps getting pushed back, so that means I’ve also completed the second hat.

I also decided to turn the scarf I made using the rice stitch into an infinity scarf.  I have to admit it’s because I didn’t want to make tassels.  I like this better anyhow. Please ignore the model.  I had no other options.

Now I’m working on an infinity scarf using the fisherman’s rib stitch.  Obviously, I like green.

Recently, I’ve added spinning.  I’m trying to figure out how to use the spinning wheel Claire left for me to learn on.

I’m having mixed results with that.  I just keep my practice sessions short, so I don’t get too frustrated.

Most recently, I’ve tried some macrame.  I shared my feather already, but I am trying other things too.  I sometimes have a bit more help than I need.

This one was a little piece just to practice the knots and such.

I do have plans for this pattern in a bit larger size.

I also want to integrate some of the roving from my llamas into macrame projects once I get it back from the fibre mill.  I should really quit looking at Pinterest; I already have too many ideas for things I want to try.

Looking for the Good

25 Feb

With the crappy weather and all that it brings, I really need to focus on the good.  And there are lots of good things going on.  Athena is doing well.

Snickers is still doing well.

Sky doesn’t care about snow or weather.  He’s just always happy.  I don’t know how I managed to get such a good boy.

Harley doesn’t have a clue that she’s not perfectly healed.  She’s still pretty certain she can do anything she wants, and that seems to be working for her.

Look at that angelic face.  That’s enough to make anyone smile.

Hilda has decided to be nice again.  That’s always good.

Even Bambi has her moments of letting me pet her.  Although, she doesn’t look too happy about it.

Tony’s appetite is back to normal.  He can’t get enough to eat now.  He’s still thin, but I’m pretty sure he’s going to make a full recovery now.  That is a huge relief.

I’m working on LilyAnn.  Bribing her with peanuts helps a lot.

Peanuts always draw a big crowd.

I think I need more peanuts.

This and That Around the Farm

Buster was basking in the sun.

Astra thought the butt scratches were nice since she’s too pregnant to be able to reach back there with her horns and do it herself.

The one day we had a bit of sun brought a couple of birds out to try and enjoy the weather.  I officially cannot tell dad and son peacocks apart yet.  I’m not sure I ever will be able to again.

Snickers was also enjoying the sun and no wind for a few minutes of deck time.

Sky usually sits patiently while I’m doing thing in the barnyard.

I have no idea what Gidget was doing.

Who wouldn’t want to rub their face on an icy snow pile?

Bob toes…just because.  It looks like he needs some lotion, or he could just lounge in the house all winter.

They all make me smile.
