Watching fireworks

From our front yard we were able to see Carlisle's fireworks, several different displays on the South Mountain and these must have been right over the hill in Bloserville. So now we know, we don't have to go into town to get a good show.

New Addition!!!

Our newest addition to the family!! This is Adder. She is just about 5 months old. She came from the farm on the other side of our lane.

She is a little sad and confused about the move. She's trying to play with the goats, but they aren't really sure of her.

The pups are very interested, as she is with them. They were nose to nose through the fence, checkin' each other out.

Now, if you're wondering about the name....See the goats are all named after white flowers, Snowdrop, Cosmo & Hawthorn. We wanted to carry that tradition along with the sheep too and what better name for a black sheep than Adder, now we have the Black Adder. ( That is totally for the BBC fans!!)

House Hats Done!!!

I finally used up all the yarn and was able to knit 3 hats for
the Charmed Knits Knit-Along. I chose Slytherin Colors because everyone wants a little bad in their wizard!!! Anyways, this was a great pattern, super easy and quick to knit. The hats are knit out of wool and are being donated to Warm Woolies, a charity that gives hats to kids in need. If you are interested in more information check out .

My creepy little dolly wanted to model one of the hats. I guess she's actually part of head-less hunt, unlike "Nearly Headless Nick".
2 skiens of yarn, 1 gray, 1 hunter green, was enough to knit 3 hats. 1 small, 1 medium, and 1 large with a little yarn left over.

Down On The Farm

There are some days I get nothing done but taking pictures of my "kids" and things happening on the farm. Our family has grown since we got here, we are now the caretakers for 3 barn cats, and we are renting out space in the barn for a couple of barn swallows that just had a family of 4 babies. ( I say renting because their job is dive bomb the dogs all day, it keeps the pups on their toes.)

I have spun a lot of wool, because I have a stand at the Carlisle Summer Fair, with my sis this year. I also just got a great big bag of Alpca fibers that needs washed and spun, busy, busy, busy.

I finally finished the 3 hats for the Charmed Knitting group. I hope to be sending them off this week after pictures have been taken.

These are some pictures I just took on the farm. They are pictures of Aj, Brownie and her ball, the Sparrow and baby family, Cosmo & Hawthorn, my 2 angora goat kids.
