Yarn Along - Where Sweaters Come From


"My name is Cute Lambie.  It's kind of confusing because my brother's name is Cute Lambie, too, but whatever."


"Here I am with my tail up.  Apparently that makes me even cuter."


"My sheep number is 622.  I have a triangle tag.  That means Rocket is my dad and I am supposed to have extra nice wool.  You can tell I'm a girl because my tag is in my right ear.  My brother's tag is in his left ear.  His ear hangs down too, but our mom says not worry that it will pop right back up when we get a little bigger."



"My brother is white and his wool is a little longer than mine and kinda shiny.  My wool isn't as silky, but it's really soft and being black makes me special to handspinners who like to knit sweaters and stuff.  I don't really understand all this though because a bunch of my cousins have long, soft, shiny, curly wool, too, and they have rectangle tags.  Something about their moms and dads and grandparents and genetics and "who knows what's going to happen"...  The people who take care of us say it doesn't really matter 'cause we are all special."

There is obviously not much any knitting or reading going on right now.  My days are busy taking care of future knitting projects :-).

    1. They do hurt :-(. But only for about two seconds. When Kathy does it, probably only one second, but I'm getting faster.
