Sweetfern, Comptonia peregrina, is neither sweet nor a fern, but is one of my favorite plants. It looks like something the dinosaurs would have walked through, and smells like all the warmest, spiciest, most magical aromas of imagination.
Your dog and goat are cute and the knitting is pretty!
Thank you :) And thank you for reminding me to make soup...the picture on your blog made my mouth water.
AW!Ahem!AW!Pretty!Jane x PS As wordless I as could get it.
PIPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the rest of the loveliness that is winter and goats! Sorry, that's a lot of words, my friend! Stay warm - XOXO
You could never write too many words, Tanya :)
Oh, I just love seeing Piper! The rest is cool, too!
Awww, Piper, with snow decorated phiz! and what's the yarn in that pic? it's lovely.
It's a Supersock Solid from Cherry Tree Hill. I haven't bought superwash yarn in a long time, but this is old stash and I'm using it to knit a pair of socks. I've decided that using a skein from stash can be considered "cleaning the house."
Piper is adorable ... poor girl having to bound through the snow drifts. The periwinkle blue yarn looks nice against your goat's colouring. Are you knitting something for her/him? I wonder, can you yarn bomb a goat? Please show us the finished knitting, the pattern looks so pretty.Wendy
The goats do their own fiber work, growing their cashmere long johns :)
Chinese New Year coming in, and there's some debate about whether it's the year of the goat or the sheep. I can easily guess which side of that debate the denizens of Comptonialand favor.
Yes, it's safe to say the popular vote here would be "The Year of the Goat: This Year, Every Year!"
Lovely photos. I know another dog who would enjoy snuffling in that snow!
Piper does love snow, but this much deep snow day after day has worn pretty thin. She comes out with me two or three times daily for chores, but wants to go back inside after just a few minutes. Then it takes a half hour by the heater to thaw the snow clumps out of her coat. Between Piper's coat and my boots, I don't think the kitchen floor has been completely dry since December.
Hello Quinn, lovely to visit you via the GYB on 2 bags full. I have only just gotten round to visiting all the blogs (family emergencies and all that!!) and thought i would drop you a line to say Hi! Have bookmarked your page and will pop by again another timeI visited NE in 2011 on a quilt tour and found it very beautiful and friendly.RegardsLorraineMonkey Business & Quilts
Hi Lorraine - thanks for visiting :)
That is a TON of snow! I hope you're managing okay with all your chores in that snow. You are a tough one!
One foot in front of the other... ;)
I can see after being out in that snow how lovely it must be to sit with some nice warm knitting!
