Just One More...
I can't stop giving stuff away. Tonight will be the last one for a while, but it's a doozie. And because it's so special, we'll take comments for two days. Leave a comment here before 10 PM Sunday night to enter the contest. In my hot little hands, I have a wonderful pair of sterling silver spinning wheel earrings with little blue topaz stones. These will really add some va-va-va-bling to your fiber ensemble. Good luck! Just tell me about some kind of knitting that has previously intimidated you, but that you feel inspired to tackle. Or maybe you just need a little encouragement to tackle? We're here for you! Your stories have all really touched me, and I'm sure they've touched others. Or tell us, if you'd like, about how you overcame your fear of some kind of knitting -- cables, color, lace? Then we'll all be encouraged by you. I can't wait.
But what about last night's yarn prize? The RNG says our winner is Peggy!! Congratulations Peggy - I think I have your address, so just sit back and wait for the mailman to bring you this really cool chenille yarn. And then let us know what you do with it! Well done - thanks for jumping in with us.
Now, before I sign off for tonight, I thought I'd share another picture from our Sheep Drenching (giving medicine) day this week. Here's Chris and the lamb she named: Eli. Little Eli is quite the pocket sheep, the smallest of the bunch, very vocal, and not overly shy. He has the most color of all the Gulf Coast Natives, with faded red splotches on his legs, face, and even a little in his fleece. When all the sheep gather around the hay trough to push and jockey for a good spot, Eli jumps INTO the trough, lies down, and eats at a leisurely pace. He lives the life of Riley.
Have a great Saturday, friends. Much love from the Farm. I'm going to dig in the garden tomorrow, God willing.
