Anyone have idea’s for a name for this little guy?


This cutie I made in one day while I was on vacation. I found a new link to the pattern. You can find his pattern here. I am working diligently on Christmas presents which I can’t talk about. But I did get pictures of the two kits I purchased at Sheep’s Clothing.


The purple doesn’t want to photograph real well here, but you can kinda see it is varigated. Big warm wool socks.


And the Sheepish Sampler Scarf. I decided to make it black with a white face. It was so cute done up in the shop. I’m not sure if I am going to keep it or give it as a gift. There are not many days here in Florida to wear a wool scarf.

Sheep’s Clothing

This is Sheep’s Clothing, the Morehouse Farm store in Milan, NY. This was a highlight of our vacation (for me anyway). I love the wool from Morehouse Farm sheep. It is a wonderfully soft Merino, and the colors are rich, just gorgeous. I only bought two kits this time around. One sock kit and one scarf kit. I will get pictures up soon.  

I have been playing with Ravelry ever since I got back from vacation. Which really means I opened a Flickr account and have been uploading all my photos. The link on the side bar will take you to all my public photos. There is a folder for Vacation photos and one that is named Projects. That is where you will see all my knitting and crochet pictures. Well, not all yet, but the ones I have worked on.

Ravelry is really great. You can list all your books and yarn and projects. It links you to people who have worked on the same projects. You can look up a certain yarn and find pattern ideas and see pictures of things your peers have made. Find comments others have made about the yarn. There are Forums and Groups too. Hundreds of groups. I keep joining groups!

The site is still in Beta and there is a waiting list to be accepted. I joined the waiting list on July 4th and just got accepted last week. My ID is Babaknit. If you are a member, come check out my profile.

My current projects are Christmas presents, so I really can’t be talking about them. Too bad, I would love to be showing them off!

Checking In

Gigi, a kit I got at the Morehouse Farm store “Sheeps Clothing” when I was up in the Catskill Mountians two summers ago. See the Morehouse Farm website here. I had to get it finished because I am going back in two weeks….. and I want to be able to buy something new!

Lace Scarf

I am working on a lot of “finishing up”. I have this lace scarf to block and a small bag to felt. I have promised not to start any new big projects until I am done with these chores. I have seen a lot of Amigurumi patterns that I am itching to start, but I am being good…. don’t know how long tho!
