I finished some yarn the other day. It is super fine, it probably falls under the cobweb lace category at 2,000+ yards/105g. It’s wool from that “useless” wether, Hoy. I still have more to spin, but I’m taking a knitting break.
Forth and Shee, Border Leicester/Shetland crosses. Shee was tossed in with one of the rams. She’ll probably stay in the flock due to her nice fleece. Forth is her 1/2 brother. His fate is undecided, but his fleece is also stellar. I may try to sell him as a fiber pet next spring.
We are currently without power. The transformer in my yard blew. I’ve called the power company and hopefully they’ll come fix it soon as it’s too dark to do anything in the house.
I made a cute little Christmas gnome out of scrap yarn over the weekend.
We are going to get really cold Thursday night/Friday and potentially rain/ice/snow. It should only be 1 brutally cold day and then 2 uncomfortably cold days on Christmas Eve/Christmas day and then it will warm back up to mid-40s. I’m not too concerned about the cold (except it will make chores uncomfortable). The animals are all wearing their winter clothes, will have plenty of hay, and can all get under cover/out of the wind. Except for the ducks, all the chores can be done from inside the barn so I should be ok too.
I’m going to try to move stuff around in the garage part of the barn (that’s where all the feed is) so I can fit my car in there for Thursday so I don’t have to chip it out of a block of ice before work on Friday.
I only have 3 more days to work this year! I work the 23rd-25th and then I’m off until the 2nd.
I started my allergy shots last week (I’m currently at my 2nd appointment right now). I’m doing the “cluster” program where I get a whole bunch of shots at each appointment and they quickly get me up to the highest dose. I got 8 shots last time. I think it’s only 6 today. You get 2 at a time, wait 30 minutes and repeat.
