Donni had a give away on her blog, and I was the lucky winner!
There is this lovely fiber, Donni dyed herself. It's called Winter Woodland (I always read Winter Wonderland until now - huh), BFL/Viscose/Bamboo blend. I'm going to work on it today!!!
There is also wonderful soft lace yarn, called "Meadow", 100% Australian wool, very noice. And look at that gorgeous shawl pattern!!! It's by Jae Koscierzynski (Some Knitting Required), and it's called "Pretty As a Peacock". Wow - how wonderful is that? She even threw in this Ashford Yarn Gauge, with a printed table to determine which yarn weight one has produced. Thanks, Donni! I'll be spinning and knitting for a while, thinking of you.
On doggie news: I thought mud season was over. This year the ground didn't want to freeze at all. There is some hope of snow in the coming days, I wish. The pups had to wash their feet , well I had actually, every time we came back inside. That's what they looked like, sometimes more, rarely less.
I had to put him on a leash to get a picture, because he would not stand still for it.
Look at Biko's goofy face. She might think, "Hehe sucker, you've got to wash my feet again (and again, and again....) Look at her belly and hind legs.
And here's the demon puppy, in the muddiest corner of the back yard. He was hiding, once again.
Edited: 7AM: We are having a snow storm. I went outside at 6AM with Happy, and it was hilarious to watch him greeting his first real snow. He did not pee however, didn't feel safe enough. We'll try again later, when it's getting light outside. Can't wait to get my feet in the snow and play with the pups in the backyard! - Later!
