Baa Baa Doily Sheep

>> Friday, July 17, 2009

A new addition to our imaginary farm. Sometimes I actually think about getting sheep. I really like slow, meditative crafts (I actually enjoy binding my quilts) so I'm pretty sure I would like handspinning. I know I would love dying the wool - all the beautiful colors I could make! And I don't knit, but my sister is a terrific knitter and would know just what to do with handspun yarn, so I know wouldn't end up with a bunch of skeins of beauty just sitting in a basket where I could pet them once in a while. But then I remember that I know nothing about sheep and I've never tried spinning and I'm really pretty busy right now and don't have time to learn another new craft. I think we'll stick with chickens on our "farm" - for now.

Doily Dolly Sheep is adorable.
You might want goats instead of sheep, though. One thing I hate about them is that they eat the grass down to the ...dirt. They can absolutely ruin a hillside, which is why shepherds have to constantly move them to new grazing.

Moving the chickens in their fancy new house: way easier.
