I had such fun knitting these. I'm going to offer them in a few other colors as well. They work so well as cell phone/license/credit card case. I knit them and then felted them in the washing machine so that they felt nicely making them thick. They came out great! I then used the buttons that Mike has been making from fallen branches as a closure. They measure 5" wide 3 1/2" tall.

The farm is having an Open House weekend Thanksgiving weekend. This will the last for this year. Visit the animals, watch a few fiber related demo's and be sure to check out ALL the new itmes in the shop. We are ready for holiday shopping! So stop on by! 11 am to 4 pm Thanksgiving weekend!
How wonderful it looks on the farm when the fall settles in. I look at the animals on the hill and the back drop and carpet of fall leaves is gorgeous. I thought this was wonderful pics of the llamas and had to share. Angel is being so patriotic at the moment and Dahli is of course looking around guarding his turf! He is to much. The shop was open and folks were coming up the driveway and had to see who it was and decide if he would welcome them! They are always making me smile if not out right laugh!
After one busy week and an afternoon of leaf blowing we decided to treat ourselves to some smoked ribs that Mike did perfectly in the smoker. So when the shop closed I made a wonderful tomato salad and homemade bread. We just sat, ate slow and enjoyed Karen's company (who joined us for some ribs) We even rented a movie and watched it after we ate. Settled in for a lazy Sunday afternoon! Hmmm, we must do this more often.
