Drive-by post

Just in from the remainder of holiday travels after a long weekend in Maine with my inlaws.

For the knitting war: my one and only gift knit was complete on the 22nd, and opened by the giftee on the 25th. Socks for my mom in Socks that Rock medium weight, color "Barney Rubble". Picot cuff, 60 stitches.

And for your amusement or horror - look what husband spotted in the local Maine paper this weeekend! Can you imagine?

Accckkk! That's the stuff of nightmares! The sheep story, not your lovely socks. The socks are dreamy!

I saw that article! I'm a Mainer. I was horrified when I saw that!! I dream day and night of owning sheep and alpaca someday and someone somewhere thought this was a good idea. I bet the idea behind it is to make sending the lambies to the meat market easier.

Happy New Year!

Maybe we need to start a campaign to save the wool!

Someone needs to knit those poor, shivering sheep some sweaters.

I love the idea of knitting sweaters for sheep!

What fools. Everyone knows wool is king. Heh. Your socks look very pretty. I think this Barney Rubble color is the first of BMF multi colors that I like! Happy New Year!

I saw that headline the other day - it caught my eye at the nurses station and before I knew it, a little "eeeep!" escaped.

(perhaps I live near your inlaws up here?)

While I don't have a lot of problems with GMO, I'll admit that I find the idea of sheep without wool a little disturbing. I have some similar though less pressing problems with the idea of seedless fruits.

Socks look good, hope the sheep don't catch on. Yeeps!
