Wash on Monday

At Zoar we adhere to the old nursery rhyme on Mondays. Ava our Saanen dairy goat is in charge of quality control. She keeps her own milky white coat so clean it seems only logical!

Casserole is in the oven, laundry is done and now it's time to do some serious knitting for our Prayer Shawl Service Group. We are currently making winter hats for the homeless, prayer cloths and shawls and a wonderful new project that I will tell you all about in a later post.

Hope you have a great Monday!


  1. Pretty patchwork! Did you sew that yourself?

    And thank you for the goat picture. That makes any day happier.

  2. Thank you! No, that one was made by the Bear's mother. She was an excellent seamstress and quilter. I'm glad the goat photo made you smile.

  3. When you have time post about your knitting projects with pictures.
    Love Ava.

    1. Thanks, I'll tell her! Holly and her posse will be quite jealous, I'm sure!

      Yes, I shall. I'm not happy with what I had on my needles, so I had to make a quick trip to the local yarn shop. I know it's wrong, but sometimes I just have to go for inspiration. Also someone had a sign up for full bred Lincoln I dare? I have a spinning wheel, and a book on natural dye techniques...;)

    3. I would dearly love to, but know better. Sheep are a lot more work than goats. I will stick to buying fleeces at the fleece fair. :)
