I've definitely gone downhill in the last couple of months and seriously thought about shutting down Scottish Lamb but I think I'll wait to see what happens over the next couple of months. It'd be kind of silly to stop now when I'll be knitting more with the arrival of Autumn.
I've been working on Daniel's Harry Potter scarf for Halloween a little. It's just about finished. I'll post a picture with him modeling it. I haven't touched the Hopeful. All I have left is the second sleeve.
We're taking the boys to Legoland tomorrow but other than that I'll have lots of downtime this four-day weekend, so I'm sure I'll finish it up. I want to start on the Birch with my pal, Jessica, but I'm also itching to cast on some Fair Isle. Of course, there's also puppy knitting to be done for Aggie. We went to see her on Sunday. A little over four more weeks and we can bring her home. Here she is at 19 days old, face all wet from nursing:
I want to knit her a little felted cuddle bed for her crate and a little sweater. Those 2am potty breaks are going to be cold in November. It's funny because I was making fun of my friend (yes, Michelle, you) about how she treats her 8-month old pug like a child. Ya. Guess who's not laughing any more. :-)
The fleeces I sent in to Blackberry Ridge last month arrived the other day. In a word... GORGEOUS stuff. I'll have plenty of wool to keep me spinning over the winter. Over nine pounds of processed roving. The darker grey on the left is Molly from Skylines Farm and the lighter grey on the right is a pound of mohair blended with Odessa from Whitefish Bay Farms:
