How about a little catch-up with those photos?

My magic (albino) maple cluster:

First snake spotting of spring:

Neighborhood construction progress; upward bound:


My pretty pony, during Friday's troubleshooting session:

Knitting construction progress; cast off just in time:

Next up, decision-time on rammie-lambies!

That's it for now from . . .

Uh oh....decision on banding or keeping?

Michelle said...

To band (so they can stay or go somewhere else as fiber pets) or not to band (so they can go somewhere else as flock sires). I don't have the facilities or DH tolerance to keep more than the one ram I have, and he is not related to any of the ewes so for now he stays.

the shawl is lovely, really, really like it, Michelle.

Wow - you just made it! The shawl turned out really nicely! I love garter snakes - they're just so cute (if a snake can be...). I used to have a dogwood like that in Cottage Grove - I loved that tree! And I really like the leucistic maple. Too bad it wouldn't survive on it's own, having no chlorophyl. But it's pretty in it's special little place!

Oh how lovely. The Dogwood is really beautiful and that albino leafed maple... I've never seen the likes of that.
The snake looks like it's enjoying itself in the sun.
Tis a Springtime post.

Ohhh, Spring :-) Your shawl came out beautiful! Which pattern did you use?

Susan said...

How lovely your place must be! It's a shame about the construction - why do they always have to build, build, build? The shawl is gorgeous, Michelle! Wish I had your talent/patience. I'll be interested to find out what you decide, vis a vis the ramlets.

Love all the photos! I've never seen an albino leafed maple; it's pretty. The flowers are beautiful.

Yes, I guess you were lucky to have just enough yarn for the shawl.
