Two Custom Orders

I was able to complete these orders this week.  Our internet has been painfully slow this week (our satellite provider say it's because of increased traffic due to the March break {I'm skeptical} )  I'm hoping our internet connection will be better on Monday so I can get these and a few other items listed.  I did add two wet bags to the shop today, it was just like using dial-up.  Tomorrow we'll be off to our St. Patrick's day parade and Monday will be back to school (and hopefully a normal internet connection!)

Yarn Along....A Mossy Shalom

I'm working on the first sleeve of my 'Mossy Shalom'.  The moss stitch at the yoke of the cardigan happened by accident, but I liked it and it was working stitch wise so I kept going with it.  This is all i have on the needles right now so it should be done by next week.  I really need to clean out my knitting basket before I start anything new, but I'm planning on some horses next (after seeing all of these horses!)


I picked up Letters from the Country at a thrift shop, I wasn't expecting to like it so much but it's a great read.  It's written by season in little stories that are 3-6 pages long.  Each story is embedded with country antics, plans gone awry, and little tips and bits of information about country living and farming  (particularly sheep farming).  The author is also located somewhere in Ontario so it helps that it's somewhat local.  It's a really nice read and I'll be keeping it on my book shelf.
