The sheep are shorn and the garden is done except for the row of carrots.  We switched over to flannel sheets on our bed and ordered hay for the winter.  The sheep are still on pasture during the day.  The ample rain we got has kept both fields in great shape. 

The warmth we got in late winter brought out the fruit tree buds early and there just weren’t any pollinators around to do their work so we got very few apples and no pears or grapes at all.  I went and got a bushel of apples from the cider mill so there are lots of pies in the freezer.

I made this Hanging Vines shawl for a friend using Knitpicks gloss – merino /silk blend.
