My friend Renée suggested I put a sweater on her. I cut a turtle neck off of a recycled angora sweater and made two holes for her legs and made a little bolero. What a cutie! I went to my local feed store and bought some baby lamb formula (which smells so damn good...) and the necessary parts to make a homemade bottle. The store said to use an ordinary water bottle but the freakin' thing leaked so I remembered I had saved a glass bottle of hot sauce. Bingo! Perfect fit, no leaks and looks so funny.
I scooped little Nessa in my arms which was a warm and happy place and fed her some milk. Her little tail was wagging and she polished off about 3 oz this afternoon. Frieda came over to sniff the bottle and she must have wondered what the hell I was doing. This evening Nessa perked up and came over immediately and drink another 4 oz before stopping. Little tail a wagging... Just between you and me, I think it is a weird coincidence that I attended the birth of this lamb and now I have the job of feeding her. Thanks Frieda. I know where you live.
Last night was the Knitting Guild meeting and I got a lot of feed back on my corrugated ribbing. I need to start over. Again. I am so tempted today to cast on something with a little less attitude which reminded me that...
I recently ordered Louet Sales Merino yarn for my next cardigan. In my search to find a dealer I discovered that the Cross Stitch Cupboard in Ottawa carry Louet products. I placed an order and they called me last week to say my yarn had arrived and I get 40% off because they are moving to Gloucester street at the end of March. How awesome is that? Now that my friends is what they call destiny. On second thoughts, I rushed over there and bought some oh so coveted Euroflax for a summer top. 40% off means I can knit this stuff without guilt or selling a kidney. I saved 75$... This week my knitting friends...what is left at the cupboard is 50% off. (Go!) I am so kicking myself for not buying a new Lucy Neatby Dvd!! However, I have some serious bad-ass stash now so I can forgive myself. By the way, I am totally impressed with this shop. They offered to mail
yarn for free if for some reason you can't pick it up but need to knit...That my friends is what I call doing business. I am very impressed. Did I say GO!
