|I love Ganseys Socks|
The embossed hearts are kind of difficult to see in this picture, but they are my favorite accent on these socks. Oh, and they fit---another good thing!
My next sock conquest will be to finish a pair that I started well over a year ago......yes, I know, shameful! The pattern is from Fiber Trends and it's called Railroad Rib Socks. I started this pair right after I learned how to knit socks using the Magic Loop Method from a great instructor at Baker's Yarns in Springfield, VT. They carry Malabrigo Sock Yarn there and I know it's the owner's favorite. I bought a skein and casted on for these socks right then and there in class...........then I brought them home and they languished like so many things that I start. Well, time to finish! Here's how far I am.

|Remnants (what the shearer throws off) of Fleece|
I took the fleeces to the spinnery mill today and by June should have some sock weight and DK-weight yarn! Shearing day is always a special day for me---it's the "harvest" of all the work that you did the rest of the year.
It is difficult to tell from this angle how pregnant she really is, but she's not the easiest animal to photograph.
Well, I'm off to get some sleep now. My vacation is over and I'm back to work tomorrow. I'll leave you with a gratuitous pet photograph:
