Freshly shorn sheep heading for the pasture

Every now and then the pen gets crowded and we let some of the already shorn sheep out into the pasture. It's always a bit difficult separating them. Sheep like to stick together and are quite chatty as they're being moved through the chute. They always look so clean and fresh against the rich green of the field!

Shearing Album, Part 2. In which I sneak a photo of Old MacDonald, the sheep continue to resist being sorted (the #tunissheep even refuses to go out by himself), beautiful wool is gathered by Old Macdonald's grandson, and I meet a kitten I want to take home. Like seriously. #sheep #sheepstagram #sheepofinstagram #dorsetsheep #borderleicester #sheepshearing #barnkitty #iwantacat

Shearing Album, Part 1. In which we visit with the sheep who came to our grand re-opening, interrupt a barncat taking a bath, and try to organize the sheep. You can imagine how easily that last bit went! #sheep #sheepstagram #sheepofinstagram #dorsetsheep #tunissheep #borderleicester #sheepshearing #barncat

Working on a new #shopsample using @kelbournewoolens #kwmojave #mojavecollection in this cheerful yellow! It's such a gloomy day and this seemed like the perfect project to work on. Pattern is Desert Queen and the more I look at it the more I wish this was for me. Maybe I'll make a second one.... #storesample #newyarn #knitpattern #yellow #linenblend #cottonblend #knittingintheround

It's cleaning day at the store so #shopdog and all of her fur have been relegated to the porch. Despite looking occasionally pitiful, she doesn't seem to mind. #cleaningday #somuchfur #shopkeeperslife #cleancleanclean #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinsta

So this lovely present was waiting for me on the front steps of the store today! *heavy sarcasm Calling the cable company to get it removed. Fortunately was able to get in through the back door. Happy Monday! (Tuesdays are my Monday) #argh #modernlifeproblems #livewire #stupidstorm #grumpybusinessowner

#shetlandwool wall is FINISHED!! The colors are so beautiful, both alone and in how they complement each other. I still have a dozen colors to put in with the shetland supreme jumper weight as well as some new colors of 2ply lace. It's going to be hard to get anything done though, all I want to do it stare at the colors!! @thewoolbrokers #jamiesonandsmith #shetlandyarn #jumperweight #colors #sobeautiful

I've been spending some time this afternoon making calls to local charity and outreach organizations. I want to start building relationships with them so that when they're in need they can contact the shop and we can, in turn, provide them with knitted items donated by our lovely community. Am also thinking of doing special events in which we craft for a specific cause and deliver our finished works ourselves. I'll keep you updated as more develops! #knittingforcharity #charityknitting #charity #givingback

Check this out! One of the folding chairs we use for #knitnight had a rip in the upholstery and I decided to fix it myself. It cut up a pair of old jeans, sewed the parts together (using my new to me Singer 66), gave the back a little embroidered flourish, and Ta-Da! Admittedly I neglected to make sure the holes in the seat remained uncovered so I had to go back and cut some little holes for the screws. Overall, I'm pretty proud of myself! #denim #recycleddenim #oldjeans #embroidery #mendit #repurposed #mending #diy #upholstery #lookwhatidid

A beautiful treasure that was discovered among Zoe's yarn. Local yarn from a farm just over the hill from where I grew up! #localfiber #localyarn #hiddentreasures
