I’m a bit behind on posting. After our most recent camping trip (photos coming soon(ish)) I misplaced my camera while unpacking so I didn’t have access to any of the photos I took. Happily, I found my camera and I’m happy to finally introduce you to our sheep!

We found a local breeder of Coopworth sheep and decided to get 2 adult ewes and their lambs, a ewe and two ram lambs. Since I don’t need two, related, rams I’ve banded them so we’ll have two friendly wethers with fine coats of wool.

This is Wub-wub, mother to white ewe lamb, Ought.

On the Go-veralls

After figuring out how to knit and purl my first project was a pair of On the go-veralls. Noah was 2 or 3 at the time. It was a bit ambitious but I wanted to knit something besides a scarf. Why not jump in with both feet!

Ever since, the On the go-veralls have been on my mental make again list. So when my Grandmother sent me a lovely knit baby blanket plus a skein of yarn I knew just what to do with it.

Even though I made the 0-6 month size these are pretty big on Molly right now. I thought they might be as the leg was looking more like a sleeve for me! However, my gauge was spot on so I went with it. During the hip section I had an ominous feeling that I wasn’t going to have enough yarn to finish. Luckily I had a little wool left over from one of the Liza Rose scarflettes. So I added it in as stripes. Together they were exactly enough. Funny how that works out sometimes!

I expect Molly will fit into these in another 2-3 months (around 6 months).
