August at Home Farm

I always find weaning difficult - but its done now and whilst we were separating the lambs from the ewes we decided to separate the flock into Black Wensleydales, White Wensleydales and Bluefaced Leiciesters.  I had forgotten just how stunning these sheep are, but looking at them now in their own groups is amazing.

We have met some wonderful people at Stratford Home and Garden Show, Fibre East and Tysoe Fete, and we will be at RBST Poultry and Sheep Sale (Woodbine Farm, Rugby) on 30th August.  

Preparations for Moreton in Marsh Country Show on 5 September is underway, and we will also have a small table in the craft tent and our local fete at Warmington on 6 September - where we hope to bring along a couple of sheep!

Some sheep and I have been invited to Pins and Needles in Devises on Friday 25 September with Victoria Harvey at her wonderful shop which we are looking forward to, and lets not forget the big event at The Knitting and Sewing Show, Alexandra Palace on 7 - 11 October. 

Thank you for the great feedback that I have been receiving about my wool.  I love to hear what you are knitting and photos are even better!  Please remember to send them to me via the website or on our facebook page :)

Our Wensleydale ram lamb is absolutely fantastic - but I can't think of a name for him - any suggestions?
