This last week...

My boyfriend grows roses and this is what he had sitting on the breakfast table for me this morning when I woke up. They came home with me this afternoon!

A girlfriend of mine has a few sheep which she keeps for their fleece. She had them shorn and then carded and spun the fleece, so I bought some off her. I started knitting it up during the week, but I don't know if I am happy with it or not. Yes, my hands feel the lanolin in the fleece, but it just isn't knitting up "soft" like commercial wool does.. is this normal with homespun wool?

I also machine embroidered cloths with black & white cows, now I have to hem them.

Until next post..


  1. What lovley roses. Do they have a nice smell???
    Don't know about the wool as I have never knited it.
    Nice cows.

  2. Lucky you - such pretty roses. I love your cows!
