Christmas is coming....

the goose is getting fat
pleased to put a penny in the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do
if you haven't got a ha'penny then

I think that is how it goes....

Is anyone else thinking about Christmas yet? Specifically, christmas gifts?

I've started thinking....not much has been done but I do have 1 possible gift that could be given to someone if the mood strikes me. Again, this year, I want to make as many gifts as I possibly can. So I guess I'd better get it in gear and get moving, right????

This scarf was a super quick knit when I needed a break from the sweater I'm working on. And with only 24 stitches across and a 4 row repeat, I could knit a 4 row repeat at a time very quickly, which pretty much guaranteed that I would not loose my place.

I love the changing colors of this yarn. I am still thinking about keeping it for myself, BUT....I always seem to get tangled up in scarves - or catch them in the door on the truck - so I'm thinking this needs to be the first christmas gift that I have done and ready to gift to someone - namely Tyler's kindergarten teacher. If I could find more of this yarn, I could knit her the matching mittens but......I think this yarn is several years old.

The new calves still don't have names. Jessie thinks Theodore would be good for her steer?!?! And Alvin for the heifer and Simon for the steer we will going to be picking up in a couple weeks. I mentioned that Alvin might not be a good name for a heifer, but the boy who showed one of our heifers this past summer named her Roscoe (to go with Jessie's calf Daisy and his pigs, Bo and Luke) which she immediately pointed out.

After last nights halter breaking episode, I think Ezmerelda would be good for her.....

We are off to a steer show tomorrow in Medina. Ought to be interesting as both Jessie and Tyler will be showing. Have a great weekend!
