The fog finally cleared up around here for a little bit, and it became extremely cold. We had a fire, and I fell asleep. I woke to this evil little face looking at me. Being it was dark (fell asleep, and had no lights on), it was rather... spooky looking. But for all those wizards and witches, no, it didn't talk to me, just glared for a while.
#1. Not a thing done so far. Guess that needs to be worked on. But I have to stay home to work on it!
#2 See? Finished not one, but 2 pair of socks that were sitting by the couch. The little one is getting there, if I hold my mouth JUST right, there MIGHT be enough yarn for the other sock. Otherwise, I will be doing some digging in the stash, or frogging to make the cuffs shorter, (which will put it in the "whenever I get back to it" pile, I have other items I am working on first!), but they sure look cute for some smallish kid! I wanted to try kid socks, but with a pattern similar to the adult socks I make. I like the toe on the kid socks better than the one I normally use, I will have to try it on my 'big kid' socks! I am also knitting on a baby afghan, but there isn't much more than a scarf's worth. Pics when further along.
#3 Well, I managed to get this blog up, so I would say it's a start... :)
I will try and get some photos in the blog of the animals, everyone in the fur and feathers part of the family seems to be doing fine. And my one poor hen that had a late molt (perfect timing, it was so frozen, and she had those ugly pinfeathery sticker looking things. She looked miserable!) is looking pretty good now. About the only bad thing, the neighbor has put ONE sheep next field over. He put it with a calf, but the calf and sheep have no interest in each other, and the sheep is nearly climbing the fence to get to people or the llamas. This is freaking out my one llama to no end, who is continually giving alarm calls by the hour, (listen here, not mine, but sounds like her) , and trotting back and forth to try and get over to her. I am really considering asking the neighbor to put the sheep in with our llamas so everyone will calm down (and SHUT UP...) You know the sheep is desperate when it wants to come over and be with the DOG...
