Here we are, saying goodbye to March already.
It’s been a crazy month, what with the virus concerns and social distancing and all. Thankfully there is lots to do here in the spring, and being busy helps keep anxiety away.
This morning when I went out to do my sheep and chicken routine, I found that the sheeps had gotten themselves shut in the shed overnight. The gate must have blown shut in the wind or something.
But what a lucky start to the day! They were all collected up for me to do CDT shots and deworming. I also got a start on shearing Felix and Dottie. 🙂 So here is the current crazy hairdo status out in the pasture.
Business in the front, party in the back!
In knitting news, I am finally making headway on the Teo scarf for my friend The Shepherd. He wanted a really simple scarf, stockinette with a garter stitch border. Once I started and got a few inches in though I realized that it was’t going to be quite as straightforward as I thought.
Grrr. Row Gauge.
So I ripped back and started again, this time working the stockinette on a size smaller needles. So I’m doing the center part on size 2s, and the garter edges on size 3s. It’s a little fiddly, but I’m getting the hang of it.
It’s looking good so far- though I might do a quick in-progress steam block to make sure it lays flat. Feels good to finally be making progress on this-
Knit on, and stay well!
