So, I had this thought the other day that maybe the sheep could save us some mowing.
We have a couple patches of grass in the lawn that are still growing, and with as dry as the pasture is, I figured the sheep might enjoy some fresh greenery.
So I invited them out into the yard-
And all they wanted to do was eat the fruit trees. I should have figured.
(please pardon Felix’s shaggy butt and undercarriage. He has not been very cooperative when I’ve attempted to tidy him up recently)
I was finally able to lure them back into the pasture with more branches. Was kind of fun having them out for a while, and they were pretty well behaved. Too bad they wouldn’t eat the grass for me though. Guess we still have to mow.
In other news- the market was a lot of fun this past Thursday. I sold some carded fiber and hats (way cool!), but not much yarn, which I found surprising.
I’m going to go back to the Bow Little Market for their last day of the regular market season, Sept 3 (since I’ve got the prep done already) Think I’m going to try and knit a couple more hats between now and then, to highlight how the yarn on display looks when used in stranded colorwork-
