This project was fast, easy and rewarding! With a bulky wool, alpaca or blend of fiber and acrylic yarn, cast 27 stitches onto US#13 needles. The pattern is worked in four rows as follows:
1. K1, P1 and continue to the end of the row with a K1.
2. P1, K1, same as above ending with P1.
3. Repeat row 2.
4. Repeat row 1.
Knit until desired length is reached. Cast off and weave in ends.
Enjoy or give as as gift. My daughter-in-law was thrilled with this.
The lazy, hazy days of summer are upon us and I see no relief in sight from this heat wave we are having. I am so thankful for the blessings of air conditioning in the house and fans in the barn.
Even Willow is too hot to play. Now that’s hot.

My post of Bella’s shearing seems so very unimportant, now. I just turned on the news and learned of the massive tornado. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Oklahoma. I just heard that there was a horse farm hit. 100 horses are dead. Enough said.

I volunteer at a local working, teaching farm called Aullwood. It’s spring and that means many of the animals are soon to give birth for the annual Baby Fest in May. The farm is home to sheep, cattle, goats, horses, chickens, pigs, barn cats and bunnies. I captured a moment with the mom to be cows and sheep who are due to give birth very soon….. and my conversation with a pig.
Out of the mouths of Kandle and Bella….
I planted my sugar snap peas on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s tradition, weather permitting.
