Hi Emily. I love to knit too. I also live on a small farm with cows, calves, dogs, and cats. Sometimes we have a couple of pigs. Hoping to get some chickens this spring. Haven't had any for a few years. I like to knit simple scarves, hats, baby blankets, prayer shawls. I hate to count so I don't get too fancy. Have a great spring.
I got mine from KP and have not been disappointed, however I no longger wind a lot of yarn, it is so handy to have it in a pull skein already, however a lot of wool does not so it is nice to have both of those. Palsknitto, Irene
When Angie sits near my arm and watches me knit, she will stare at the yarn thread for a very long time, usually falling asleep, but occasionally she will lunge at the yarn to grab in her mouth, but she doesn't chew on it, she just wants to grab it then lets go. You can't figure what cats are thinking!
Hi back-back! My kitties are sweetie-pies who like to 'help' me knit. Pinkie, the white and black one, will sit just out of reach and watch, or when I am winding yarn on the swift, she waits until it stops and then leaps into the center; can't help wondering what she is thinking each time she does that? Maybe she wants a free ride... Angie, her sister, is the kitty that likes to leapup on my chest, right between me and my knitting! Gives a person a heart attack! Usually she is more polite, and sits on the arm of my recliner gently patting my arm and asking permission to climb onto my lap. They're so sweet.
I am a farmgirl at heart! I was raised on a dairy and beef cattle farm. We did have pigs when I was very young, but not too long. I love to go home and experience life on the farm!
Good luck on your current projects!

I am sponcering Savvy from a horse rescue nearby that ran out of prophet. When i first got her she was underweight and we still arent sure but possibly pregnant but i love working with her and spending time with her she is sixteen and was beaten so she is very hard to train but we are working on that :)
Oooooh Emily, search and you will find! Go into Raverly and search for "multi" yarn. There are some awsome ones, hand dyed, to die for!!! Or do a Noro Yarn search, those are the prettiest colorful yarns I've ever seen!
If anyone wants a really cool lacy scarf pattern (about intermediate level) go to youtube and type in Brooke Nelsons Columm of Leaves scarf. There will be a link to go to the sight, where you can print the pattern. It's really really beautiful!
