Popping In with Lambs and Knitting

Some more lamb photos. Big surprise. Yes, it sure is about the lambs. We are up to 141 lambs now.

The lambs are beginning to run and jump and play!

Love the perky ears

I don't know about you but I've been doing a lot of knitting this winter. Most of it is for upcoming Fall 2013 projects so it is hush hush. I know this coming weekend is a big knitting weekend for many of us. Just wanted to take this opportunity to give you a few ideas for PDF instant download patterns which are perfect for Superbowl Knitting and the upcoming Valentine's Day Holiday. All the patterns shown work for my Color By Kristin Wool/Mohair/Alpaca yarn available at many fine knitting stores.

Matt, Bridget and Julia in their Quarters Caps
First up is my popular Quarters Cap. Have you knit it yet? I've knit at least 20 of them. Marlene, one of my customers called knitting the Quarters Cap like eating potato chips - she couldn't knit just one. After the first garter stitch quarter of the cap, the pattern becomes automatic. The pattern is sized for from babies to adults and you'll need a worsted weight yarn. You can order it on my shop page or via Ravelry here for $4.50. Below is my niece Celia wearing one adorned with a pin from my Sunflowers and Zinnias to Knit and Felt Pattern.

Do you have a special Valentine to knit for? How about trying my Heart to Heart Mitten Pattern? The pattern features 2 versions - the single heart version shown below which is sized for from babies to adults. 

The second version is the multi-heart version shown below. Both designs are included on the PDF Instant Download pattern.  It's a bit more intricate and loaded with all kinds of embroidery. Available on my shop page here or via Ravelry here for $6.00.

Hope you all are having a good week. As always, I thank you for reading.

I know that the farm life right is so time taxing but thank you for all the lamb pictures. I wait each year for them.

The lamb pictures send me over the top each day. The first one in this post should be captioned, "She thinks I'm cuuuuuuute!" (Rudolph re: Clarice!)

I just can't tell you how much I'm enjoying your lamb photos! They melt me!
It's funny, the morning of the "playoff" game, I was in Michaels, and there were many women in line holding armfuls of yarn, including me! Made me laugh.

Your baby pictures are my special treat before I start my workday! Thank you for taking the time to take them - the cuteness is over the top!

I hope you and your family can have a little breather this weekend! 141 - you're halfway there, right?
