At some point I’ll need Nick to be the camera person so that this can flow more smoothly. For now, this is what I have.
I’m so excited about the way this wool is cleaning up and spinning. I’m blending lots of scrap fibre I have to add texture and colour. This is a 2 ply yarn, knitting on 5.5mm needles for #cwcfallshalwalong. I’m joining Sara and many others as we knit together – but safely apart. You can see what she’s up to here:
For me, my bread is done, the coffee hot, and the day is beautiful.
A quick walk through the garden this evening. Nick completed the new chicken enclosure. I’m so glad they have more room to wander and scratch. I wasn’t sure how it would all come together but am happy with the way it turned out – down to the door with hinges.
We harvested the garlic already as well as the first batch of cooking onions. I also have 3 beet plants still to harvest.
To knit some mini mittens. In order to accomplish this task I’ve set my self a challenge to knit one each day. This is not difficult to do but keeping the task in sight will ensure that I accomplish the goal. Each one completed will be filled in.
Do you have a long term task ahead of you? What would you like to complete?
One summer we picked a bushel of peas at a farm outside of Elmira then spent the afternoon shelling and getting them frozen. A quiet afternoon sitting in the shade of the carport with my 2 older girls working away. There was laughter and giggles. The others were enjoying their afternoon naps. A wonderful memory as I shall today.
