Lambs are 13 weeks old

This is about the only way I could get them all together.......FOOD!
It has been so dry out that the pastures have not been growing and they have eaten all the grass that was there.  Recently we mowed hay, I went out with the pick up truck and brought in two loads before it was baled.  Everyone just loves it!
This picture is of most of the boys, except notice "claire's little girl", who we have named Bonnie,
when she was born I was hoping that she would change color and you will notice that she is.
Bonnie is the one between the two Moorit (brown) lambs.  Her fleece was black when she was born and she looks to be gray underneath.
In the background is one of my new lambs, she is also considered gray, but she is very light.


I've just finished spinning this gorgeous yarn. I bought some beautiful gray alpaca fiber and blended half of  it with some light gray shetland wool and the other half with black shetland wool.
So really I ended up with a two tone gray.
I ended up with 416 yards of dark gray yarn and 400 yards of light gray yarn. 
I am thinking of making a shawl, I haven't decided yet if I want to knit or crochet it.
decisions, decisions......

It's always something......

I've got a couple of new pictures I wanted to share this evening, but my computer is not cooperating with me.  I have satellite service and a storm is rolling in. 
Not good for making a connection to get the pictures loaded, but we do need rain, everything is drying up. 
Will try again tomorrow evening.
