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.
And Ippi, mother to the two ram lambs, (white) Faba, and (black) Donka.
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!
Luckily for me they turned out well. Now, I think the yarn drapes a bit too much. They are super comfy!
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).
