There have been a few small rains here and tiny little sprouts of green are emerging from our parched earth. My three does are in goat paradise finding and demolishing the tiny slivers of green goodness; except when it rains when they stand at the fence (rather than under the shelter M. built them where their dry alfalfa is) and bleat pathetically till I take them back to the barn where they happily demolish the same alfalfa they wouldn’t touch in the field. **Sigh** Stupid goats.
This last week I haven’t managed to finish M’s second Beau. All the repairs went well with only a few “Oh heck that was supposed to be the opposite way!” moments but I just haven’t gotten to the last edge… soon! He would have worn it before I did the rescue work… the man really does not have any sense of style.
So I moved back onto Amanda which has the back finished and this is the left front just started. This picture pretty much sums up my week… busy. Too busy and I’m going a little bit nuts with all I need to finish in too short a time but it is all bits-and-pieces work so I can get in half a row between my busy working.
But about Amanda: I love to knit cables. L-O-V-E to knit cables!! They are so so much fun but I often find the result is too bulky. Not Amanda. She is practically perfect in every way with a honeycomb pattern at the sides which I have to stop occasionally to sink my fingers into. The only thing is: I rarely wear cables so I dunno if I’m likely to like Amanda finished but she is just so darn fun to knit!
Reading I have done… None. Unless you include my new copy of Mollie Makes… that’s reading right?
I’m all linked up with Ginny today- have a lovely and happy hump day!
