Feeling a little sheepish...

that I couldn't come up with a punnier title!

Saturday I went with some of my knitting group to Drake, Saskatchewan.  Susie was going to be judging fleece, and wanted some people to go with her.  So, with knitting projects in our bags, off we went!

There were several different breeds of sheep there.  Unfortunately, I don't remember the names of the breeds to go with the pictures.

There were black sheep

and white sheep

and white sheep with black faces

and little girls walking their sheep

And homemade pie from the concession stand!  I ate it before I thought to get a picture of it though.

All in all, it was a good day.

It's gray out today

and I haven't been feeling well.  I need some colour!




And more white...

And a pair of puppies looking cute!

WIP Wednesday

Haven't done much spinning in the last week.  I started spinning some yummy merino.  All was going well, until it got to be too thin and broke.  I couldn't get it to join again, so it's waiting for a bit until I can convince the fibre that it really wants to be spun!

And it's so pretty...

I'm also working on a sock

The colours aren't showing well in this picture.  It's more purple and green than it appears here.

It's hot and humid out there!  Hoping for a break in the weather that isn't accompanied by a massive storm!

Vacation time and Tour de Fleece update

I've been on holidays this last week.  It's been so nice having the time off.  I've spent a lot of time catching up on my sleep.  I've also spent time spinning!

So, in a week I've gone from this

to this!

My very first skein!  I'm still working on consistency, so it's kind of thick and thin.  It will come with practice.

Happy Canada Day!

145 years and going strong!

Penn and Ciara are ready for the day!

The sister and I are off to Moose Jaw this morning for Park Art.  Not sure what the rest of the day holds.  Maybe the fireworks tonight?
