Shawl Swap

Well I am finally done with my shawl for the shawl swap I was in.  I was going to mail it yesterday, but forgot :(   Th e shawl was great fun to knit and I am looking forward to knitting more.  The prayer shawl I am working on is not yet done.  I hope to have it done in a few weeks. 

Here is the shawl.

A Long Time!!!!!

I had hoped to post here oftener but life got in the way.  The summer has gone by so fast!!!!  I have filled my summer with helping around the house.  And taking care of all our animals.  We sheared four of our eight sheep in late May.  Three of our milking goats kidding giving us six kids all told.  We lost four of them :(  There also were some ducklings and chicks hatched this spring.

I have also been knitting this summer too.  I am working on two shawls.  One is for a shawl swap the other is a prayer shawl.  I am about half done with both of them.  I will post pictures as soon as I am done with them.  I also have helped my Grandpa a little this summer.  

It has been hot here and we have had a lot of wildfires.  Thankfully we have not been hit by one.  There have been a few that have been close by though.  When I read about the fires my feet get to itching and I want to go out and help fight those fires.  But my job is to stay were I am and pray they will be put out soon.

Till next time!!!
