Lambing, 2010, part II

So, this morning brought another set of twins!

Florence (the ewe with the most gorgeous charcoal fleece) had a set of ram twins. Spotted and lovely:

These two, I'll try to find homes for fiber wethers or sell as breeding rams. With Florence as the mom and the awesome coloration, they're going to have amazing handspinning fleeces.

Shirley's two from yesterday:

First thing she said when she woke up this morning, "outside, sheep, mama!". Too cute.

They are so cute! And Isabel has her priorities straight. Who wouldn't want to look at all those adorable lambs first thing in the morning?

Just wanted you to know that I loved the cowls you made that are in the new Spin-off magazine. I'm using the pattern to make a baby afgahn for my fifth grandaughter. I didn't have time to spin the yarn, but it's still turning out great. Thanks for the inspiration!
I love your blog!
