Joining a favorite blogger today in her weekly Yarn Along. Ginny says:
~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
Joaquin (the cutie-pie with the digger trucks) helped in choosing the yarn colors for his vest and now I just need to put it together and knit the arm and neck bands. I am always scared to do that part so have distracted myself by starting a new knitting project. I'm not alone in this approach, am I? Isn't that one of the paths to starting so many projects before finishing the one at hand?
I do love the Lucinda Guy book "And So To Bed". If you haven't seen it, it's a visual treat.
I am reading about Sheep because we just got the oh-so-adorable goats. (My brain just works this way so you have to have some patience.) Turns out, the goats aren't quite the mowers we had envisioned. Of course, they have other really valuable qualities so they are still "keepers". They are mini-dairy goats, age 1, twin girls named "Mocha" and "Latte". Mocha has the brown eyes (of course) and Latte has blue that actually look white (like the foam on a latte) Sometimes I call her "Caramel Latte" because she has caramel drizzles on her cute little face.
Now I want mini-sheep too so they can mow our lawn and keep us amused with their cuteness. I found out AFTER acquiring the goats that sheep are better "mowers". In addition to mowing, there is the wool factor--so perfect for all my plans for making Waldorf dolls and toys. I am looking into the Babydoll breed of miniature sheep. Isn't that name too, too precious? I can make baby dolls out of Babydoll wool and include a tag with a picture of the actual sheep who provided the wool. Well, that's the dream anyway. We'll see what our landlord has to say (no pressure, Scott)...
I am enjoying the "Sheepish" book tremendously. Easy and entertaining read. What are you knitting and reading?
