|This is a tiny cotton plant that sprouted from a seed, not even a week old. The seeds are from Joan Ruane who grows and spins cotton. Visit her at http://www.spinningcotton.com/. I'm in the midst of level 3 Master Spinner which means assignments are based around Cotton (along with blends of cotton, silk and wool)|
|I've been working on these socks on and off for several months. I'm knitting two at a time on 2 circulars. The pattern is 'Waving Lace Socks' by Evelyn A. Clark and can be found in the book 'Favorite Socks' (Interweave Press 2006)|
We've gotten word today that the shearer will be in our area next week. So with that in mind, we'll get the barn/shearing shed prepared for the big day and round up some helpers. I do hope the weather improves. It's always such a shock for the sheep to be stripped of there wooly winter coats.
