Some may say I have gone nuts. That's okay. Sometimes you have to make your own fun here on the farm. I've been knitting. Now that isn't an uncommon thing here. I knit - sometimes a lot, sometimes not. But I have been knitting a lot this winter.
I've also been taking lots of photos - mostly of sheep and their lambs. You know -- you've seen many of them, haven't you?
So what do you get when you put knitting and lambs together? Some kind of crazy knitter woman with all this stuff on her brain... with too much time on her hands...... Actually no, I don't have too much time on my hands..... it was all I could do to get these done.....Idea has been brewing for a couple years.... never any time to make it happen.....
Today, I give you some of my latest combo efforts....
White Lamb in a Striped Coat in the Snow
White Lamb in a Pink Coat with a Donkey named Eeyore
Black Lamb in a Striped Coat
White Lamb in Snow with Crocheted Flower Collar
All knit in my lovely Julia Wool/Mohair/Alpaca yarn which you can find at your local yarn store.
You can purchase postcards of my latest zaniness here on my Shop Page. Go ahead, reward the fun I bring you from the farm. Buy some postcards..... Share that lamb and knitting love with a friend by sending a postcard.... You know you've been trying to convert those friends of yours - knitting, lambs in wool sweaters, what could be better?
The postcards are here but I won't be shipping them until Monday, February 22nd because it is Julia's winter school vacation and I'm entertaining her and we are visiting my sister and her family. There will be no copyright type on the front of the postcard.
And By The Way...... The pattern will be availbable very soon if you would like to knit your lamb a sweater...... I have to knit at least 148 more..... and they aren't this small anymore.....
Thank you for your support. Spread the word about Kristin's lambs in sweaters in the Julia Yarn......
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
