A little nippy here

I am so cold, I can't feel my fingers!  Still no camera which is the reason for a lack of blogging but I decided it has been so long I had better just use phone pictures for now - apologies for the lack of quality!  We went out for a curry last night at Henstridge which was really very good - lots of alpaca talk and hearing about a series of unfortunate events made for a very good evening!

I have been knitting but have had to take a break until the fire is lit.  It always seems a waste during the day as I am in and out checking animals but knitting with cold hands is difficult!  Another pair of fingerless gloves are now finished and I am really pleased with the new yarn.  It is a mix of Greeves, white cria and  a black from Slash (renamed by his soon to be new owners) and is vey soft.
The Flower Lady has also been busy and has knitted a real triumph - matching set in white alpaca which is gorgeous!

Sheep are now getting close to lambing - 4th March for the first few and then a little gap before everyone else.  This weekend will be busy getting ready for that - and we have a birthday to go to.

Alpacas are all well.  No one is due until the end of July so it is a quiet time with them.  Nothing much happening except we are starting to think about Ellingham Show with the first obstacle being finding a judge!  I am now going to go up the hill and, no doubt, break water in the troughs again.  I have a great house breaking tool which I found and it does the job very well!  I shall also attempt animal photos on the phone.

  1. Rosemary, your photos are fine...all ours are taken on the phone these days as it's so much easier!

    Good luck with the house break'ins...whoops sorry ice- breaking!
