2012 - A year of Wonder here on the farm
I'm very pleased with my knitting tally. According to my knitmeter if I actually entered in everything then I knit 5170 yards of yarn. 27 projects including two pair of socks and one shawl.
Farm life? We had a very long hot Summer where we stressed over the rising price of hay and the drought that damaged our pastures. We did have some Alpaca sales. We went from 15 Alpacas down to nine. There are mixed blessings because I miss these members of our herd but also happy that we were able to sell animals in this rough economic year. Our farm did gain two Geese whom we named Wonder and Why. They are doing their job guarding the chickens and turkeys. We also have three Nigerian Dwarf Goats named Willow, Loki and Scarlett. They are a true enjoyment and their presence has given the farm a whole new level of Wonder.
So, what will 2013 bring? Who knows other than at my farm it will be full of Wonder, Fiber Arts and Friendship. Thank you to everyone who visits my blog each week. Thank you for making 2012 an amazing year and may 2013 be full of rich pastures, beautiful fleeces and lots of goats milk.
