Here are two pictures of my little black ewe lamb, Margot.
She has just turned 8 months old & measures 38 cm at the shoulders.
Ever so sweet!
And who knows, she just might have a lamb this coming spring.
The ram has been chasing her about ....
Germinated Ray Grass Seed
I was quite pleased with this method. So far, I’ve gotten a really good stand of grass!
Here’s a small patch of grass ... approximately 2 weeks after scattering the germinated seed.
It might not look like much right now .... but by March - April .... it will supply my little ones with some beautiful, high-quality pasture!
Praline & Nougatine in the orchard!
Here they are ... for your viewing pleasure, just because they're soooo cute!
Praline & Nougatine, my little brown ewes, are currently awaiting their rendez-vous with a little brown ram in a few weeks! Everyone's excited about this, even me!!!
I just love watching these little girls in the orchard. Praline is just 39 cm tall ; Nougatine 43cm.
I'll be posting more soon ...
As I was spinning and thinking about knitting, it occurred to me how things change over the years. My grandmother taught me how to knit when I was 8 years old. I remember as a teenager how I couldn’t find needles big enough or yarn thick enough! As I’ve gotten older I’ve grown fonder of smaller needles and finer yarn. I think that this is due to many things ... but perhaps more than anything else, it’s because speed is not the object anymore : I no longer try to finish a project as quickly as possible ; now I enjoy the process of knitting. I love every stitch. Smaller needles and finer yarn only means more stitches to enjoy! Also, at a gage of 7 to 8 stitches per inch, 500 grams of ouessant fleece can go a long way!
