Randy is working on our chicken yard. We got some little Silky chickens and they were very cute. They looked like they had hair instead of feathers. I thought I took some pictures of them, but if I did, I can't find them. Anyway, Randy decided he wants some regular chickens that lay normal size eggs, so he sold them to his sister, Tammy, who likes all kinds of animals. Right now we just have one lonely rooster. He seems content to wait for his little lady friends to arrive, but he isn't laying very many eggs! =) Handsome little guy, isn't he?
Randy sold the two horses we had, and is now looking for a dairy cow. We want to make our own butter, and cheeses. Though I don't really know where the time is going to come from to do so =) We still have our dairy goats, but we aren't getting milk right now. We are giving Valentine a little milking break before her new kid comes into the world.
Also been busy knitting and spinning of course. I have started knitting Randy's big thick hat. He wanted it in green of course, him being a John Deere type of guy. The pattern is on the Lionbrand website, and it's free. Here is the link if anyone wants to try it, it's a quick and easy knit. Simple Knit Crimson Hat
I need to hurry this along, as it is freezing outside while my poor hubby is working on the chicken yard.
The second thing is cute little vest in Knit Simple's Knit's Plus magazine. It's called the Camel Cardigan, however I am not doing it in a camel color. I am making it with Bernat Satin yarn, and the color is rouge.
That's all for now folks!
