Lambing Season!

I love spring – I love the flowers and the fresh scents and the sense of possibility.  And, in the knitting universe, this means that people who keep sheep are having many a sleepless night as as the new lambs are born.  Thankfully, the knitting universe is pretty generous, so the folks with sheep are willing to share these precious moments with us all via the internet.  What made my morning was this video from Barb at FoxFire Fiber, which is not terribly far away – in the Berkshires of MA.  Three day old lambs, in sweaters – what could be more precious?

It’s been a slow knitting week for me – I did two college fairs for my beloved alma mater, NC State, and that sucked up a lot of my evening time.  Today, I want to get some cleaning done, and then I’ll hopefully squeeze in a few rows before going out for dinner and a play tonight.  I’m working on a grey cotton cardigan, which will be just perfect for spring – if I can get it done!  It’s top down and empire waist, and I’m a few inches from the empire waist bit.  Delightfully, it’s knit in one piece, so it feels like it’s taking forever but when it’s done, it’s done!


About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.

I believe I am going to recycle the yarn from the sweater… it is a small and would be a tad to small for me lol… I’m excited to learn how to dye… kinda nervous that i might mess up, but it was only 3 bucks right? if i could just find the time!! 😉
