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!
