Sometimes we need reminders. Stop and smell the roses. Listen. Put your naked toes I’m the grass. Enjoy your life it’s the only one you’ve got.
My friends and family are great reminders of this. Young and old and in between 😘
Today our good friend Mary came to show us how to let loose Twirl style!

Meet “Tid-Bit” a cute baby Shetland, pot gut of pure adorableness.

Tid-Bit learned to slide today! It was an exciting adventure but one he dare not try himself. For being a tiny pot gut sheep with slippery hooves… He just thinks It won’t end well. So he let Mary hold him and he took several turns with his Mamma (Mary of course) and Waylon and his buddy, until he became famished and demanded requested the children hunt for green and yellow leaves. (Which were very specific in color and tenderness)

And when his “pot” was good and full he told us funny stories about his travel to Petaluma with his Mamma. And how the Twirling Fatties kept tickling his nose! He had us rolling on the grass.

We are happy to call Tid-Bit a friend and greatly appreciated the time he took from his busy schedule, of guest speaking at schools and summer camps, to visit us at the park today!
Thank you Tid-Bit (and Mamma Mary too)

Woah Mamma! yesterday was so windy. I avoided at all costs. Thankfully it was chilly enough to turn the oven on and bake up some yummy (sheep) cookies. The kids watched a movie and I got to thinking about my ‘Dunlin” shawl, from the Bird Collection by Helga Isager. I had taken it out… forever ago and I haven’t put it back on the needles. Until last night. With the Twirl ‘Dye Day’ on my mind I dug in my stash and found the exact colors – in Twirling Petals- I was using in the Isager yarn, eh hmm, my name is Ashleigh and I like love Pink. The Twirling Petals is a softer wool. It’s sweater worthy. The colors are so fabulous. I have a dark grey “Twilight” and a soft Pink “Cochineal “. It’s a light yarn with a luscious blend of alpaca, suri alpaca, kid mohair and soft lambswool. Her yarns are minimally processed (from her very own animals) and the color ways are fun. If you have not yet, I highly recommend trying both Twirl and Twirling Petals.
I was originally knitting ‘Dunlin’ with the Alpaca 1 on a size 2 (the pattern calls for a size 4) but the Twirl is bigger so I upped the needle to a size 5. I busted out the Dreamz Interchangables with a 24” cord. These are my favorite ever! (We are currently sold out)
The ‘Dunlin’ pattern is so cool, it’s knitted from the neck down. I have made the self fringe shawl before and basic corner to corner shawls but this is made similar to a top down sweater. It’s already going really fast (i said that last time too ;D) and I am hoping to share it with you by the end of the week. You know when you aren’t ‘feeling’ a project and something needs to be adjusted? Well that was me and ‘Dunlin’ ;D so now its readjusted and hopefully the next time I bring it up it will be a finished product on my shoulders. Come in check out the yarn and get your spot for the Dye Day at Twirl Farm!
Happy Knitting!
