Warm Along

I had hoped to put together a true Yarn Along post for today, but work keeps getting in the way, cutting into my reading and knitting time :-/.  I did finish the Punkin hat though, just in time for the cold snap.  I tried to get a true Felfie (farm selfie - just heard about that the other day :-) last night, but I looked like a crazed idiot in all the pictures and the hat was overexposed so all you could see was a white blob.  

Petunia patiently stood with me for try after try* and she kept sniffing her cowl like she knew either a. it was her wool or b. that's why we were doing the pictures so she should pose.  She's a natural photo pro and I think loves to mug for the camera.  Chocula kept trying to grab my hair and Daniel is leaning on my back, nearly pushing me to the ground a few times - why I look like I'm falling down.  I am not a natural photo pro. 


"Boys."


Allie's just chewing her cud here, but doesn't she look she's she's cheezing it up, the socialite getting her picture taken at the big winter party :-D.  Sadly, this is one of those times when I should have been watching my aperture setting (why she's not completely in focus).  Still cute though.  And Ford, in the front, is another sheep who loves to have his picture taken.


Buddy is listening to ice sliding off the barn roof behind him.  He's just so darn cute when he does that.  When he does anything.  He needs his own video :-).


PPPP (Popcorn Pee Pee Pants) going for a more composed look and listen.  That's a good description of the difference between those two sheep.  Buddy wears his heart on his sleeve and you never have to wonder what he's thinking or feeling.  PPPP - the only time you know exactly what she's really thinking is at cookie time ;-).


Rebecca Boone is actually eyeing Hank between bites.  Those next pictures might be tomorrow's post.  Poor Hank.  I don't think she's really "playing"...and I think he might be figuring that out as well ;-).


Graham.  And I wonder who keeps ripping off all of Elizabeth's plastic...


Hank tries so hard to take good care of his sheep.  Rebecca Boone should stop picking on him!

* City Boy is the true master of selfies - from way before selfie was even a word!  He'd have had the perfect picture in no more than two tries!

Buddy? Who's Buddy? Allie and Ford? I think I need a key. Yeah, that's it's - "The Complete Annotated and Illustrated Guide to the Sheep (and Friends) of Punkin's Patch". I'm telling ya, it's the next big thing. Put me on the waiting list. ;)

I'm actually going to do something like that. Working on moving my original website over here so I can update it... The computer I used to do that died, along with the obsolete program I used to code it. I don't feel like learning the upgrade/new version...in my spare time ;-). Hopefully we'll have a "Complete Annotated and Illustrate Guide" soon :-).

Tracey said...

Your Punkin looks amazing and I love seeing all the sheep, such grand creatures!

Michaele said...

I just love the - one ear turned - photo. Such wonderful friends.

Michelle said...

Wonderful photos all; that first one would have been (will be?) PERFECT for Wovember! (They are sure being slow about picking winners, aren't they?)

Yep, you need a tab called "Cast of characters" with maybe sub-tabs for "Sheep," "Horses," "Dogs," "Cats," and "Chickens."

Cathy said...

Thank you for making my day as I revisited memories from the days I was shepherdess! Your flock photos were wonderful. There is nothing quite like being there with your flock, and barn days during the winter bring such contentment!

Blessings.

Oh, my goodness, I love sheep! Such great photos, and I love your description of trying to get a pic of your beautiful cabled hat...too funny! :)

Lori Skoog said...

Beautiful shots Sara. Love your hat and that picture in particular. Who is City Boy?

thecrazysheeplady said...

City Boy is Tim's brother Jeff. Jan's husband - of "chicken slappin'" fame :-).

Warm Along and Felfie...so clever!

Spinners End Farm said...

The cutest cast of characters! (You included)

karen said...

Look at you so snugly buggly in your woolen cowl and hat. I

farmlady said...

Just love seeing photos of your critters. They are beautiful and amazing animals.
Love that hat!

Michelle said...

The sheep are just such naturals in front of the camera. You have trained them well.

Miha Giustina said...

That Punkin hat is priceless. Even if it was -40 outside, it would have still kept you super-warm because it is such a special hat.

And what to say about the smiling sheepie pictures!? I giggle every time I look at them. They are too funny! That one shot of Allie and Ford is definitely calendar or postcard worthy.

Terry and Linda said...

I like the cheesy smile...I think it shows what she is really thinking!

I love seeing someone else's sheep covered in hay!! I think itls adorable when they stumble out in the morning looking like they;re having a bad hair day b/c of all the hay in random laces. Does make picking the fleece a pain, though ;)
