A is for... Animals

I'm doing something a bit different this month, pinching an idea pitched on Ravelry by Tinks - she's going to be taking up a challenge of blogging all the letters of the alphabet this month on her blog. Some of the letters are going to be easier than others!

This one, however, has come to mind because of a couple of events this week. First, the little Circus Tyanna has come to live on the Green this week. For a spinner, the most exciting ones are obviously the llamas - wouldn't these two make a great sweater?

There's also this extremely cute white goat which is tethered just opposite my house
and a slightly less cute goat - there are quite a few ponies but this miniature one is probably the sweetest-looking...

I'm sort of glad to have animal distractions out there at the moment, as the Bug is in the veterinary hospital until at least Thursday - she had an enormous pancreatic cyst removed yesterday and they've sent off various bits of her for biopsies. I imagine she is not amused at the moment.

No knitting to sit on, for one thing.

I've got ideas for everything apart from the letter U, so far..

How cool to have goats and ponies etc hanging about just opposite your house. Although I'm not a huge fan in general of circuses with animals, at least llamas and goats are easier to care for than elephants!

Oh, BUG! I'm sorry, Liz. You are going to be punished for DAYS when she gets home.

Hugs, by the way.

Sorry to hear about Bug and hope she's OK. Agree with what Jane/Chilly Hollow says about punishment ;o)

Oh poor Bug! Best wishes for her health (and I do hope she doesn't yak on the rug in retribution when she gets home... unlike my cats).

I would love to have llamas, goats etc camped outside my house! Hope the Bug is feeling more herself soon.
