PUSSY WILLOWS-ONE MITTEN FINISHED

GREETING

The weather has been crazy.  One day last week we had 3 inches of rain.  Roads and driveways washed out.

Rivers overflowed their banks.  Only a few patches of snow left in the woods.  Maple sugaring season has started.  Buckets are out and steam is coming from sugar houses and yes its mud season here.IMG_6469

PUSSY WILLOWS

  Every year its gets harder and harder to reach the pussy willows. I am trimming them and have started some branches to root in water

MITTENS

I have started the second mitten  I have made a pair of these before but remember having an easier time with the decreasing on the top .  They are a dense mitten which will surely keep my hands warm.

FIBERuary is over and It was fun and  I learned so much from each blogger and presenter at Sheep and Shawl.  Be sure to check in with Sheep and Shawl and The FIBERuary site for more events that will be happening throughout the year.

CHICKENS

The two coops have merged and things have settled down.  The weather has been so warm that I have taken off the insulation on the door and am letting them out every day.

Mmm, I love maple syrup, does it smell delicious when they are doing it? The mittens looks so cosy. X

Oh yes it smells wonderful. Years ago I use to make it and still have the equipment. I hope to make it one last time, its lots of backbreaking work. The mittens are quite thick and will keep me warm. Hope all is well with you and your family. X

If the pussy willows are out, spring can’t be far away!
