Today we watched our sweet little chickens as they sand bathed in the sand, oh how they enjoyed this! It really was the cutest thing to watch, sand flying everywhere, how wonderful they are, I couldn’t imagine our life without these special creatures…

Knitting Jen’s cardi by the fireside…

Thought I would show you the colourway, I just love it! All natural all organic… I am ready to knit the back and the front sides now. I am happy to share the pattern instructions in a blog post soon if anyone is interested.

A new really large mug just for me…

There is a new one of a kind unicorn in the shop🙂

Have a wonderful weekend xo

    Your chickens are such a pretty color, and I just love that beautiful thick gray yarn. The cardi is going to be so cozy.

    Dear Sarah,
    I love the yarn too, and I especially love that it has come straight from the sheep to my needles, no dyeing, just spinning.

    I really am interested… and… maybe… how you fixed the arms on the kal-shalom … i’d love to make mine with “arms” (hope this is the right english word for what i want to say?! so sorry for my bad spelling…).
    greetings 🙂

    FINALLY able to comment after weeks of blogger stubbornly refusing my attempts…it’s early summer here, but I had the woodstove on this morning to ward off the damp chill…love your cozy autumn pictures! I let my young pullets out to roam for the first time today and they LOVED it…all dusty, pecking away at anything that moved. So wonderful!

    Dear Maria,
    I will post the pattern instructions for the cardi I am knitting:) As for the sleeves of the Shalom, I used a circular needle and picked up the stitches around the arm hole and then started knitting in the round. I decreased a few stitches as I knitted to make the sleeves taper.

    Dear Susan,
    I will post the instructions, thanks for vsiting:)

    Dear Stephanie,

    Your chickens are so pretty! And I love the sweater, too.

    I would love to know what the fiber you spun is/ where you got it from? It looks positively wonderful!

  13. Jayne June 7, 2011 at 8:25 pm #

    As I had indicated in my email to you, I would love to have the pattern for the beautiful brown cardigan. So love your chickens!

    Darling girl – you really know how to build a life. You are the kind of person someone like Laura Wilder would write a book about. Too bad these times don’t recognize that stories of a quiet, family, powerful life can be very true. All you have to do is choose it on purpose and pay the price (which usually ends up being no price at all, but part of the joy.)

    such lovely colors in all your projects.

  16. Linda June 8, 2011 at 9:15 am #

    Dear Meag,
    The fibre is from my friend’s organic sheep. It is from one herd that is sheared once a year. I have asked to have it spun up for me to knit these cardi’s and I also sell a small amount if I have a request for it. It is very precious Merino in its natural state. Too beautiful!

    I’m in love with your cardigan, and the colorway! Please, please share the pattern…

    Blessings, Debbie

    I am knitting a sweater for myself at the moment. I am so close I can almost feel it on me. It is a grey yarn as well. Not as pretty as yours. I really like that colorway.

    Big mugs. That is how every mommas should be. And full of hot cocoa. 😀
