Cold Weather Projects and Barns

Falling For Ewe Question of the Week #2:
What ‘cold weather’ project are you looking forward to making the most the autumn?



My Wrap Me Up Stole. I just picked it up again, having put it down during the hot days of summer...it was just getting to large to have the heavy wool across my lap when the temps soared! I am still really enjoying this knit! You might remember that my version is a mix of handspun and commercial yarns. I may only ever wrap up in it while I sit at the computer desk (it is big and heavy - LOL!) but I love it ;)

I want to include in this post a few barn pictures for Robin, who commented earlier this month about having a barn fix looking at my September photo of the Burnham barn. Our farm encompasses two adjoining properties, the piece we live on and the other place known as the Burnham Farm, even though Bill (my husband) has owned it for probably thirty years now. Both are blessed with beautiful hip roof barns, and of course the Burnham Farm is where the "Round House" is located.

These photos are of the "Serenity Farms Barn" - the barn here at home, both inside and out, as well as viewed from the pasture. I hope you like seeing it and that the interior photo is not to dark....

East Loft...

....view from the field. Notice how it dominates the landscape? It is a central part of our lives....

What a pretty knit! I'm not participating in the Falling for Ewe, but I'm looking forward to picking up my Log Cabin blanket again!
(((hugs)))

Love the wrap so far.

Old barns are one of the best things about taking one of the roads less traveled.
