First though, is one of my "excuses" for failing to blog - we have a house guest! Isn't she adorable? Try to ignore my hubby in the background...
This little girl was born a few days ago, and it was a pretty tough experience for her mom - a first-timer. By the time Lambie was born, her mom basically decided that her part in this drama was over - which means that we are, for the time being, her foster parents. Hubby brought her home from the farm, and we bottle feed her 4 times a day. She's in a pen in our family room. It sometimes freaks me out in the morning - I get up, usually not quite ready to be awake and up-an-at-'em, and I hear a plaintive little voice from downstairs, announcing that she's awake and wants us to do something for her - and really, could you resist that adorable little face? I can't!
Anyway, I do have a knitting project to share - it's the Boreas Infinity Scarf, a free pattern on Ravelry. I recently got this beautiful sock yarn online from KnitPicks, and decided to knit something other than socks with it. I'm not a big fan of scarves - usually having something around my neck drives me crazy, but this scarf looks promising! I try to work at least 2 rounds every day (that's 480 stitches!)
And finally, I came across a quilt challenge the other day - Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is hosting the 5th annual "Hands2Help" charity quilt challenge, and this year, she has a Canadian site to donate our quilts to! I also found a few new quilt ideas online, so I'm signing up so I'll have an excuse to make those quilts! You'll have to check in regularly to see what I'm making. Plus I still have my "ALYoF" project to finish by month's end - yikes! I'd best get sewing!
