Great Grandsons. Lots of them.

Today we headed over to my grandparent's house to spend a few hours playing and having lunch.
After hours of fun, we attempted a group photo. Attempted being the key word....
And yes, that's 9 great grandSONS. Lots of boys.

And a photo of my grandfather's hand made wooden bowls. Gorgeous. They cooperated much better for their picture.

That's it for today :)

"Come on Mom, let's take a walk"

Chase, the walk was fun, but you're tired and it's time to go home for a nap. "I'm NOT TIRED!"

I think someone was tired.

Some days the perfect thing to do is take a walk and say hi to all the animals at Mommom and Grandpop's house. Not a hard thing to do when it's steps outside your front door.

Creating for Fall & A Seminar

Summertime brings warm days and furious knitting. I know that knitting usually dies down for some knitters in the summer because people don't typically enjoy piles of wool in their laps. However, summer is the time that I knit like mad to have things to sell in the farm store.
Knitting is my pleasure and started as a hobby. But over the years, it has become a source of income and it's nice combo if you ask me. I truly love to knit, teach knitting, surround myself with yarn, squish yarn, learn, explore and immerse myself in the whole knit world.

Yes, it's a lot of work and not nearly enough money per time that I invest. But I'm doing something I love and the customers at the farm seem to love the finished products. 
I've been making a bunch of hats, some cowls and I also fit in a sweater for Chase.
A handsome little classic sweater that will fit him all winter (I hope). 

I sprinkled in a few other photos....some stash diving and organizing, baby Grant getting big!, and Liz teaching a felted soap class. 

I am working on my fall class schedule so hoping that will be posted soon.

On another note, the farm is sponsoring a very informative and important seminar.
Alpaca owners: check it out! Registration has to be done by September 1st!

 I have a few more knits I just completed but forgot to take a picture. I'll have to do that and post another day.

For now, hope you are enjoying the last days of summer!
