Cranking up a Storm

The crops are not quite ready to harvest yet, and so there's a lull (if you can call it that) in the farm work while we wait. We've had our first hard frost, so much of the garden is done. It's still nice enough weather to have the sheep out in the pastures, so feeding chores are not too time-consuming now, either.

Because of this "lull" The Farmer has been using his evenings and weekends for cranking socks. Here is a display of some of the socks he's made recently. Some of them he's made from our wool and then dyed after they are in sock form (look for the tie dye effect). Some of them he's made from yarn we've purchased. And my favorite are those he's made from our own wool yarn that we dyed before it was in the sock format. Stay tuned for more sock production photos...
