Playing hooky

Monday has been put on the back burner, I am taking the day off from life to work on Christmas presents during the daylight hours.

After my post about trying to find the perfect present for my Minecraft loving 8 year old boy, I came across these pistachio fudge Caron cakes (naturally) and alas, a blanket was born

It is about 47″ tall and after I finish my C2C decreases, I will be adding a boarder. I want this present to last a long time and while a 8 year old who is almost taller than is soon to be 11 year old sister, that is going to be hard.

I am also trying to finish this order today

Fringe is not my friend folks, it takes longer than crocheting the actual project itself.

While I sit and work on these things however my mind is elsewhere, you see we have had just a tease of snow here and it melted as quickly as it came. I am sitting here on my couch, but my mind is sitting in front of a fire on a snowy day, with my spinning wheel, spinning up all kinds of creations.

A few months ago I went to a sheep workshop and met many wonderful and knowledgeable people. Two people I met were a father and daughter, they raise Shetland sheep and I was extremely surprised to come home one early fall day to a box full of Shetland wool!

I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet, but it looks and feels amazing ❤️

If you are interested in purchasing some lovely Shetland wool, you can find this fabulous folks here Abdali Farms Langdon, you won’t be disappointed!

Have a great week folks!
