To that end, practically one whole day was spent transporting seasoned wood from the lot across the street our property. We generally buy a truckload of wood each year. We let it sit for a while, then cut and split it. This wood has been sitting for a long time, and it's nice and dry. Oh, it's going to burn so hot! One year we burned wet wood, and this completely sucked. So I feel especially grateful that we have 1) an abundant supply of wood, and that 2) the wood will not hiss and steam when I'm tending the fire this winter.
|My guys hard at work!|
Here's a picture of what this thing will actually look like.
|Pretty cute, right? It's actually a free pattern from Paton's Yarn. It's knit in two pieces, front and back. I've completed the front and I'm well on my way to completing the back. It's easy, mindless knitting, which suits me just fine right now.|
|I made a mobile out of these cute little guys.|
I also made another cute mobile for my friend's birthday.
|This isn't made of wool, but I just wanted to prove that I was also busy while Kieran and Heron were busy schlepping all that wood...|
