Was I a bad person in a last life?

I seem to be lurching from one low level crisis to another. Suffice to say there was an incident this weekend which pulled the rug from under my feet and made me question if I can trust people at all.

Anyway - good news. New baby goats came this morning, 3 of them. The mum gave birth to 2 boys and a girl, again. I don't have any brill photos of them as she was in a confined space and I didn't want to freak her out by climbing on stuff just to get a good view.

Two of them (girl in the foreground) :




















The other boy:
















A concerned Mum:




















Mother and triplets are doing fine :)

Yarny stuff is piling up. I've been making some small knitted flowers with crocheted leaves to sell on my stall. I've also been doing some dyeing.

Some rainbow rovings:





















Some yarn in the same kind of colours:





















And a shawl I've started based on the oneI did earlier in the year. I'm hoping that it'll sell on the stall as I've had so many comments on the other one.

















I'm in a strange state of mind about this imminent stall. I feel stressed to buggery but unable to get on with it. Fear I s'pect - lol. It's happening a week on Saturday - wish me luck :)

Good luck with the stall! Your dyed rovings and yarn look beautiful, and the shawl will be snapped up, I'm sure of it.

Hurrah - a bit of time to sit on this god-damn uncomfortable chair and catch up with your goings on - good luck with the stall, I'd be there with my cash for that shawl!(if I wasn't in crappy Essex and a bit closer to your lovely neck of the woods!)
Positive thoughts being sent to you across the internet ether - some people are muppets, the genuine ones you keep close to you (hubby, kids and those few that know your inner soul!)

I love the yarn and the roving, what kind of dye are you using?
I'm thinking of buying some superwash to experiment with.

n - I'm using kemtex acid dyes but using citric acid instead of vinegar. It seems to give brighter colours.
