Wow, I just did an inventory of my WIPs not listed on Ravelry. It’s bad…and I am not even sure I got them all.
Part of a blanket I started about 2 years ago. I borrowed the pattern from a friend….I better get to work.
Lovely Cookie A socks…I had the priviledge of test knitting these socks for her upcoming book! (Can you hear the squee???) The first sock is done but the second sock hasn’t even been cast on.
I just started this one. (I know, I know) But in my defense I was asked to knit it for my LYS and I got some lovely yarn in exchange.
I started these Wisconsin Winter Socks for a friend that seems to have fallen off the face of the earth :( I will finish them for my son.
Sorry for the terrible picture. I was knitting this for a local dyer for her booth at Fiber Festivals and found out I was using the wrong size needles. Oops! I get to keep this scarf though :)
This is a sweater for me knit out of my hand dyed yarn.
A hat I started for a knit along for The Counting Sheep Farm group on Ravelry…
Yeah, umm, I don’t like this pattern. Rip it, rip it, rip it!
An inherited WIP….it is a bag knit out of Crystal Palace Yarns.
And the last one….another inherited WIP :)

Today I updated the Etsy Store. Friday night we had quite a scare and I am trying to increase sales enough to support the purchase of a guard dog. We have had people wandering on our property before and I have even caught someone shining our sheep last year during deer hunting season. However, this weekend it got a little more serious and my children and I ended up locked in my bedroom waiting for the police to respond to my second 911 call. The first one was made when someone knocked on our back door at 11:30 pm and then ran away. No big deal really, but I was home alone so I called just to be safe. I guess they decided they hadn’t frightened me enough and decided to shake the back door as if they were trying to get it open. In the end it was just a prank but it made me realize our friendly farm dog wasn’t quite up to the job of running offenders off.
At any rate I have listed quite a few batts today :) I always enjoy carding these up. I love how each one is just a bit different, even when you use the same fibers.
I am also in the process of updating the Farm Store.
