STUNNING!!!!! I am in awe.I finished this project on Monday. Just barely in time for my trip to VT this week. It is coming with me and is going to the fair.
I’ve done 3 square shawls now. You can see improvement in my skills from 1 to 3.
Shawl from 2019 - hand spun Shetland from 3 different ewes.
2022 - also handspun Shetland
2023 - handspun Border Leicester Shetland
I’ve got 4. I got Broad Breasted Bronze this year. I prefer having heritage breeds, but I’m not set up to over-winter anything but the ducks and heritage turkeys take too long to finish.How many turkeys you got? I keep wanting some, so far I've resisted. Same with a cow 😱🤣
I've butchered turkey in past, it's a big bird to handle. But I have 2 incubators and thinking hatch & sell poults. 😁
I hope you get decent prices for your sheep. I took 6 ram lambs to a nearby auction and prices were way down. But at least they are gone and off the feed bill. Been in drought all summer, 100 plus temperatures and pastures brown and crunchy. My sheep are on dry lit eating a round bale a week. Got a little rain, grass greened up, but too short and new to let the grass piranhas out on it yet.
I’m sorry you got sick, but at least it was on the last day and you just had to make it home. Coworker drama can ruin a good job. Maybe it’s time to look for another one.
You need a manure spreader to put that fertility back into your soil! Look on Craigslist and FB marketplace for a used one.
Love the pictures of some very spoiled animals slumbering in total comfort! Hahaha!
