Relaxing, Productive weekend

Seems like a funny title . . .relaxing AND productive. . .. .something just seems to not fit. . but . . my weekend was quite relaxing and very productive.  I started wayyyy too early on Saturday morning - spun some of the gray llama/angora blend - then headed outside to clean part of the llama barn.  The chickens have made a complete disaster.  It was hard work, but I got it done.  Got the tractor stuck atleast three times!

Hay was delivered to make the llamas happy!  Then I headed off to the mill to pick up my processed wool and then to the lake to check on the cottage.  All was well at the cottage.  Then home for a night of spinning and nascar. ..well, I could have done w/o the nascar - but it was on the tv.

Then Sunday, I dyed a bunch of alpaca yarn, helped Jeff split wood and read a book.  Great book - The Choice by Nicholas Sparks - will have to look for some more books by this author.

Here are some yarn pics from my productive day . . the rest of the yarn is still baking. :)

Bright, solids :)

I crocheted!

This is quite a statement for a confirmed knitting addict.  Anyone who knows me, knows I ALWAYS have my knitting. .. well since I really like the crochet flowers. .. thought I would try knitting these chicks from a pattern from Rebecca at S Type Creative.  But you have to crochet the comb, tail and beak. . .I did it! ! !

Favorite Fuzzy Llama!

Montgomery is the "ham" of our farm.  Always looking like the innocent boy!  Likes to think he runs the entire farm . .. well. .. I guess he kind of does. . .he is our Logo and has been our Christmas Card picture many times. . .. he is "The picture of Winding  Creek" . .. .
