There is life beyond lambs

Do I hear any sighs of relief? I suppose not everyone wants to see unending photos of lambies eating and growing and exercising and sleeping. Although I really can't imagine what better options are there for your viewing pleasure! (And for those of you who come here specifically for a lamb fix, rest assured I have more cute pictures, and even took some video this morning that I will try to figure out how to share.)

Yes, I find the lambs infinitely entertaining. Of course, life is so much more than entertainment. In fact, life all but crowds out time for entertainment, what with working and homeschooling and cooking and eating and exercising and sleeping and, and, and. It's a good thing I have some commitments that force me to play with fiber. I still have three Pay It Forward gifts to finish/make within three months, a baby gift to complete, and that alpaca I need to spin to "pay" for the rest I get to keep. And since I told myself, "Self, after you finish the first 8 oz. skein of alpaca, you get to spin a bit of something different as a reward," that means I had to spin that something different in order to get back to the alpaca! (Hey it makes perfect sense to me. :-) So here, without further explanation, are some of the things I've been working on lately:
(If you really must have some explanations, email me!)

That's it for now at . . .

Beautiful! Whats in the first picture?
I have to ask, you started a vest of something with that purple yarn, did that work out? I sure hope so, by the looks of the last pic you posted you had a lot of work into it...

Hmm. The promise of video is intriguing. ;-)

Love the fiber in the first picture. What is it?

I love your pictures of lambs & sheep. I can't raise sheep of my own, so I have to enjoy the photos and comments of other. Keep 'em coming, and thanks!

Your lambs are adorable and I will never tire seeing them :) Your projects are very nice! I would also like to know what is in the first picture??? I hope your girl waits until Easter, mine is getting really close :)

Lots of interesting projects! I gave you the same Proximity award that you have already received from MiniKat - I guess we both appreciate your blog.

Ooooo...I love the colors in the first photo! That would be so fun to spin! Is it from your own animals?

The colors in the first photo are gorgeous. Somewhere on line I read about using Kool Aid to dye wool. She had some amazing colors. I guess you don't add the sugar ;>)) And I love lamb and sheep pictures. Don't want to raise them, just look at them.
