Knitting Sort of. Lots of Life.

I have been knitting away on my Colinette Flounce Jacket, but don't have any pictures since there are just pieces. I finished the back and both fronts, and the two sleeves are side by side on the needles right now. I first saw the jacket on Froggy's blog and loved it so much I opened a new browser and found the yarn and pattern on ebay! The yarn is Point 5 and I chose Florentina as the colourway. And, like my Colinette Shimmer, this has the distinct odor of sheep. I mentioned in another post that I grew up on a 40 acre farm in Westminster, Maryland. We had sheep, cattles, chickens, cats, and dogs galore. I helped my Dad put up hay, feed and water the animals, and liked to watch when our sheep were sheared. That smell of sheep shearing is what comes through when I work with Colinette--lanolin.

Thinking about my farm makes me remember that I wanted to remind you to check out The Farmette Report. Janis has pictures of her cute mini donkeys, talks about her holiday decorations and has just started to knit! This is a fun blog to read!

This is such a busy social season for us. We will be out every night this week! There are days that I just want to sit at home and be lumpy, but that's not for us in December. Where were we last night? Sesame Street Live. Our two year old thought getting to see the Sesame Street characters was the greatest! I have fond memories of Sesame Street from when I was a kid, especially of learning to count and learning my abcs, so Sesame street is one of the few shows that Anna is allowed to watch. The show was actually not as painful to sit through for an adult as one might expect. Watching Anna's excitement, however, made it all worth it!
