More lambs at end of CAL.

2016-cal-participants-finished-pillows.jpThe CAL from Squirrel Picnic is over and I hope you have fun watching the Pillows being built. The pattern is available through The Big Acorn Race book . Dearie Ewe and amigurumi lambsDearie Ewe has some new spring lambs to watch and this week Β I am giving yarnit a bit of a plug. A new invention and made in America, as soon as I saw it I knew I HAD to have one. The yarn goes in the dome and eliminates all yarn spills making projects cleaner and more mobile.Β Really worth having a look as they conduct a launch through kickstarter.yarnit.com
Enjoy the variety of pillows. I love how they are all the same pattern but all different.

  1. I have a friend in Alberta who raise’s Alpaca’s, they shear them each Spring (I think that’s when they do it) she sells the fleece for a lot of money! She gave me a small amount once, I think I made a small scarf!

  2. Oh thank goodness re: your critter being healed now – as my girl Indie is susceptible to those, too. Gives me a ripe ole’ scare! Lol re: your tram experiences!! That yarn holder is a stellar idea!

  3. I think you will find it a good investment Pauline. I have actually tried making them over the years but I couldn’t get the yarn to feed properly. Speaking of bread and water, I have just been told the boy will need braces! (and not the hold your trouser up type) πŸ˜€

  4. Speaking of the yarnit, I travel by tram and sometimes surprise people by dropping yarn on them so the holder is going to save me (and others) from embarrassment. LOL! We are all well here. One of my critters had an eye infection but is fully recovered and by some miracle, didn’t “share it” πŸ˜€

  5. My family had a sheep farm in the Australian outback and I saw many lovely lambs. Occasionally there would be an orphan lamb that would be bottle raised at the hearth. I believe goats are lots of fun and very playful when they are young . I am lucky to have a friend who has 3 sheep and she gives me their fleece to spin.

  6. The cushions and the sheep all look wonderful Sharon – and heavens, I went to look at the yarn holders as I have been longing to find something like that – and ended up buying one! That blew the budget out of the water!! Back to bread and water πŸ™‚

  7. Sharon, these look so great! I especially love how well the black vs. white yarn-colored critters compliment ea. other so nicely. And speaking as a former crocheter (but who’s well out of practice) that yarn holder is invaluable! Particularly if one has pets at home like I do that get into EVERYTHING! Hope all’s well…. πŸ™‚

  8. The yarn holder looks like a small fish bowl! Love all the colours of pillows! Those lambs are so cute! Reminds me of when I was a kid, I had a Goat that had 2 kids, one was still born and it was black, the other grew up to be quite the rascal..I had many a head aches /bruises from him head butting me!!
