A Hint Of Progress?

Well, well, well. Are those some of our stupid sheep letting Hank the Hated hang out with them? Or is it just close enough to dinner time that they don't want to take any chances...

Petunia: I can't get into the picture 'cause Peabody's big butt is in the way!

Buddy: Is someone there?

Woolliam: Yeah, she's got the camera again, but I don't see Hank anywhere (snicker, snicker, snicker).

Friends like Woolliam (the seeing eye sheep) and you sure don't need any enemies.

Buddy was way overdue for a trim, but he's just so darn cute I kept putting it off. When he has to sniff the air to figure out where he is... He has some stylish eye holes now.

Allie, Elizabeth's (the smartest sheep in the world) daughter. One of our nicest fleeces - getting close to spring shearing :-).

Okay, I am not making this up. Keebler got his feelings hurt when I was taking pictures of Graham for Sunday Stills. Seriously. Now he's again been "slighted" by my taking group pictures which, I will have to admit, he doesn't show up in. He's walking away right at feeding time. By himself. All the way out to the front.

I'm sorry, Keebs.

Almost everyone: Now what's he mad about?!?

Speaking of (negative) progress, I messed up something again on the cowl and had to rip back to my lifeline, SEVEN rows back. Then, I apparently had missed a stitch with the thread, but was able to figure that mistake out. I got three rows back on last night - 14 rows to go.

I absolutely love your sheep. Your pictures really made me smile.
I posted some sheep pictures today, and I'd be delighted if you'd stop by and check them out.

AWWWWW poor Keebes.. I like the dreadlock look of the rasta sheep, Hey Mon, is it lunch yet?? :-)))

If I die and come back as one of your pets, that's OK with me.

Poor Keebs. My Dreamer is a sulker too.

As for your knitting 'progress': at least you had the good sense to USE a Lifeline! (something yours truly regularly forgets to do and then regrets it)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your flock will soon come to appreciate Hank!

You always make me smile. You do know your wooly babies and you share with us thier personalites, way cool.

Take a whole series of Kebs, he is just too sad.

Oh those coats look so fluffy and long for shearing. My spinning wheel can't wait! I do hope that warm weather settles in soon for that very reason. :-)
As for Keebs, you need to make that boy happy. Where is the box of 'nilla wafers? He deserves some extra special treats. There's nothing worse than a sad sheep.
