It's a Slow Wednesday
I wandered into my friend's gift shop the other day. Joanne is clearing her stock, as she has just sold her gift shop that she has run for several decades in our small town.
And I fell in love....
Isn't he beautiful? (or do you think it's a she?)
It's silly. I'm not a big consumer of decor items, especially since I'm at the stage in life where I'm trying to de-clutter. But really....I couldn't resist. It called to me. I know its a lucky talisman for my kitchen. Besides, I got a stellar deal, too.
Do you have a suggestion for a name for him (her)?
I'm learning how to knit socks with the "Magic Loop" method. I really didn't think I wanted to learn this, but my knitter friend insisted on showing me. I have to admit that the rounds go a lot easier than on DPNs, which I was perfectly happy with. However, I got stuck after I turned the heel and I've left this project. I need a morning, a coffee and no pressure to put my head into it.
Some pictures from my morning out at the barn...
I covet my neighbour's land....is that wrong? It's currently hay fields. I can picture a herd of 100 alpacas over there grazing. No fence-posts or barn over there, though. Hmmmmmmm....
