...and in other news...

Bar-b-qued duck, anyone? A glass (or three) of home made wine was entirely responsible for the terrified duck. Honest.

Briggs & Little blanket. Wool. Crocheted. Coming along nicely, but still only about half-way done. Sigh.

And most recently, ten additions to the farm! Aren't they adorable? The mama hen pecked me yesterday when I tried to feed her! B*tch!

Other than that, I've been knitting on the Lopi sweater. I'm almost to the top of both fronts. I might actually finish it before the really cold weather hits. The white aran? It hates me. Yes it does. I have to rip back the sleeves (AGAIN!) and chart the damned things before I try again. The pattern for the sleeves bites the big universal one. Like it was written by someone who just didn't want to put any effort into it.

Good thing tomorrow is another day. Cheers.

Your new babies are so adorable. The mother I am sure was just being protective.
The B & L blanket looks like a lot of work,especially if it is only half done! Good luck with the other half.

I'm late with my comments but here goes:
I love the blanket - wow, gorgeous colours. Can't wait to see it finished (as I'm sure you can't!).
Those babies are soooo cute and huggable. ps: looks like you are having fun with the duck :)

I wish I lived on a farm and had baby chicks and ducks. And didn't have to take care of them.
