Sockyarn and Sheep
Hanspun Superwash Merino Wool, in purples and teals that Valerie (who has stopped blogging due to Ravelry...) dyed and sent me for my birthday (last year).
Sock yarn! Fingering weight, and superwash, perfect.
The ewes are pretty big now, almost full grown I'd say. We had to pull Fred out and isolate him last weekend. He's less than thrilled about it. Especially because the ewes are showing signs of "being ready to breed". But, since we don't want to lamb until April, he's in lock up til mid-November.
The light is getting lower now too. I've had to move from taking yarn pics on the deck to a fence post out in the garden. (and, I saw some yellow leaves on a cottonwood on the drive to work this morning!).
The llama I think is happier with the sheep now Fred is in isolation too, I've noticed him hanging out with them more (if you click and make this pic big, you can see the adorable baby horse my neighbors have in their pasture!).
It was 49 degrees this morning when I went downstairs, I don't remember the last time I saw a temperature in the 40s. I'm glad you guys like my garden pics too, I feel like this time of year I want to capture it as much as possible before I have to wait 7 months for more.
