I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it....I know, I know....

Gosh, what brought that on? 80's disco fever? You should all know that's not me but today it just fits the bill.

For starters, I got up and took my 3.5 mile walk/run this morning and decided the run part wasn't going to happen today after my knee felt stiff. Think I overdid it over the previous 5 days. But, Tess, the border collie, loves the walk and so do I. This morning's 75 degrees at 7:45 am was not very welcome but a cool shower did the trick to stop the sweat.

So, then on this Monday's agenda was a stop in town to my friend, Janelle's. Janelle is a knit designer and she has come up with 2 "ewenique" designs utilizing Cooke Creek Sheep Company yarns from our girls here on the farm, both our Texel yarn and the Coopworth. I am not by any means a knit designer. I am a knitter and a shepherdess, so I felt Janelle was best suited for this idea of mine. She was and is and I plan to see what else we can come up with down the road but for now....the unveiling of the patterns and yarns will be very soon. I'm still doing the tech-y stuff to get pictures and what-not. I'll keep you posted!

Another thing I did this morning was purchase an IPod Shuffle to take on my walk/runs. It is not as intuitive as I had hoped and so far I have nary a download on the little neon green stinker. I need a teenager to help me I guess. Clearly technology is in the passing lane and I thought I could always keep up. Not so. I will have my daughter-in-law help me. Think she's a whiz at this stuff. Son is out of town.

Well, just wanted to check in, say it's hotter than hades here in Eburg and that I will be traveling to see my mom and dad for a couple of days but hopefully I'll have some pics tomorrow of the new and EXCLUSIVE Cooke Creek Sheep Co. knit designs by Janelleknits! Woo hoo. Thanks again Janelle. Great job on the designs and the beautiful samples which I will show off soon. More later.



  1. Ohhhhh...congratulations on the new designs, waiting to see them! Walking is better for you than running, especially as the years pile on -smile-. Be as gentle with yourself as you want other people to be with you...makes life more wonderful thataway.

  2. Exciting news for sure! Be sure to update the blog as your idea makes progres.
    Walking isn't my friend so I'm checking into getting a bicycle. Much easier on my various creaky body parts. =)
