The Knotty Sheep Shop

Thursday, May 28, 2009


I know my BloG has been languishing.

Part of me has a ton to say - the other part is just to exhausted to post about my Life ramblings. Yes - I am tired.

The week after next - things should ease up a bit. My job is finished for the summer next Monday. I am excited as there is much I need to get 'caught up on'. Hmmm - shall I announce here that the garden still isn't planted? Will be working on that this evening & tomorrow.

One of the things that has been a focal point for me this week is Mary Jane Farm! I love the "I can do it" mentality. I also like the "I can LIVE without it!" attitude as well. Yes - being a farm girl is about caring, doing, creating, and living. I am a few shy in these departments, but I am trying.

Given that, The Knotty Sheep has been busy once again!! "Naked Seaweed" is ultra soft & ultra lustrous! Don't you agree??

I love the colors of these batts! I would spin finely/tightly ... I am thinking some wonderful sox could be knit out of yarn created from them!

While dyEing & carding is once again the order of the day ... so is my Jaeger! He has been with us for a little over a month and is still draining from his surgery. Compression wraps have slowed it, but it will be 2 weeks ago tomorrow, that he had surgery to remove an implanted microchip that his body rejected. We have the 1 in 1 million dog! (My stats ... I am just sayin' .....!)

He has been a trooper & tomorrow he has another DR appointment. Please send good energies to him. Seriously, how cute is he??

Back to the dyepots & carder .... Jaeger is also our "1 Million Dollar" dog!

OMG, Jaeger is adorable! I hope he feels better and better every day, Knotty.

Jaeger looks so pleased with himself. Too cute! He's expensive but worth every penny, right? At least that's how I justify kitties Jasmine and Marco, who could give Jaeger some competition in the Expensive Pet Hall of Fame. LOL

Sweet Jaeger and his Mom is even sweeter.
He looks very loveable Kary.

Wishing Jaeger all the best! He looks adorable in that shirt, but I'm sure he'd rather not be wearing it - hope he is all better soon.

And that batt is just lovely - you get the best colors!

What a beautiful pup, and yes - it makes perfect sense to me that you would have that one in a million!!! He is lovely, dear Kary - and my very best thoughts are to you all!
