My husband has been fussing about blue (his favourite colour is blue). I have mauve, pink, brown, orange, and purple. I've had green, yellow, and cream. No blue. So here it is...merino/silk in a blue. With and without flash.

Long post ahead
Over 9 years ago I joined a knitting group called SnB. Then I was young and it was huge, over the years people came and went but in the end there was only a hand full of us. Two of those people taught me what true friendship(family) is. 
They moved away, and by away I mean a 3 day drive, away. It meant me flying there, then flying here, lots of fb messaging and life goes on. 
But when they message about needing a place to stay for half a week you mad clean your house to just be able to see them for a minute. Then when their plans change you change yours and travel an hour and a half away to a yarn store and have fun. #knitting #knitter #knit #knittersofinstagram #yarnstore #needles #knitterspride #patterns #friends #family #girasole #jaredflood #flyingfibers

My favorite guy and little Sid the ram lamb. ❤️🐏 I am so fortunate to have a fella like Brady who throws hay like a champion but can still dote on the animals (notice the horse hair on his shoulder. Foxy was getting some lovely pets and grooming from him). In terms of Sid, he is a stunner who we will grow out and then decide if he or Graham will graduate and be the next sire to our flock of Shetlands. 🐏🐏

Souvenirs from my visit to @flyingfibers today. Some yummy Leicester Longwool flock yarn, a @toft_uk kit that is beginner friendly ( and hopefully idiot proof😜) and a sweet card from @annawrightillustration ( chickens!). #knitting #se2se #lys #knitstagram #farmyarn #knitallthethings #flyingfibers

The only reason I knew there was a storm last night was because all of the animals were riled up like they had been spooked pretty badly. There was no damage, no evidence of flooding, nothing but the energized animals. I was sure we would have lambs due to massive pressure changes we had experienced, but nope! Our last two mamas are still holding out on us! Maybe next week...

Being born is tough. Being born and then having your mum lead you up the side of a hill, then have you run back down it because your mum has gone to the bottom for feed is also tough. These two little Shetland lambs experienced a lot in their first few hours. Now they are tucked safely away in a little pen with their mum to have a rest and bond a bit more. ❤️🐏🐏 #flyingfibers #flyingfibersflock #knitwool #wearwool #lovewool #longwoollove #shetlandsheep #wensleydale #leicesterlongwool #lambingseason

Spring is finally coming and we are excited for the change of seasons. During chores I noticed that our beloved willow seemed to be making a recovery after it’s shock of being relocated during the terrible floods we had last fall. Hoping for continuous growth at the farm ❤️

Part of being a shepherd is finding the product that works for your farm! We find our best selling item is not livestock, but yarn! We love to support small family-run mills that turn our homegrown fleeces into a beautiful yarn for crafters to use and love. We are expecting new flock yarns to arrive from the mill any week now, and can’t contain our excitement! Pictured is a lamb from last season posing in front of a basket of some flock yarn ❤️🐏

Our small farm has been a dream in the making. I grew up in the city of Buffalo but always felt misplaced. I loved animals, digging in the dirt, and being in the woods. I was 53 years old when I was able to buy some acreage at long last. For several years prior I boarded my sheep because that was my only option. So grateful to now raise heritage sheep including these two North American Wensleydales, Monica and Agatha. #flyingfibers #flyingfibersflock #femaleshepherd #smallfarm #nawsa #wensleydalesheep #happyplace

CALL FOR TEST KNITTERS!⁣
My next pattern is ready for testing! ⁣
Mussel is a top down, knit in one piece button up jacket. ⁣
The beautiful BFL and Wensleydale blend lends itself to fabulous stitch definition and an over all fuzziness. The intricate cables and twisted stitches make an engaging and substantial knit. ⁣
Inspired by the mother and daughter team of @FlyingFibers, based in America, and having watched Irina tending to their animals come rain or shine over social media, i knew this knit needed to be hard wearing, hard working and warm. Their love of British long wools is infectious, and a shared passion.⁣
The yarn colour Whitby Shale has been named after a beach rich with fossils in the UK, i have named this jacket after one of my fave shells found on many beaches in the UK, which you will often find covered in barnacles, ridges, lumpy textures and general sea things. They are pretty beautiful.⁣
Deadline This cardigan is going to be published with Flying Fibers, at the Maryland Sheep and Wool show on 5th May. (oh my goodness i will be there in spirit then this year!!) Due to the nature of the fast coming up deadline, i don’t require you to have finished the whole garment, but you would have need to have completed the raglan shaping to just past the arm holes at least.⁣
⁣
Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)⁣
⁣
Finished bust circumference (actual finished size of garment) ⁣
91 (101, 111, 124, 131, 138, 152) cm / 32 ½ (40, 44, 48 ½, 52, 54 ¼, 60)” ⁣
– to be worn with 5 - 10 cm / 2-4” positive ease. ⁣
Francesca wears size 3⁣
⁣
Head over to my Ravelry page (link in profile) for further information and images on the test. Or DM me.⁣

Hello everyone! I am @flyingfibersjeri and I will be taking over #pawagn for the week. I am head shepherdess of Flying Fibers Flock, where I raise Wensleydale, Leicester Longwool, and Shetland sheep on my farm in York County, PA. I strive for preservation through education of these rare breed sheep and can’t wait to take you along on this journey! Pictured here is Graham and Hilda, our two Shetland lambs from last season. We should have lambs hitting the ground in the next month, which will be quite exciting!

But I have a lot of project to share, both stitching and knitting, and I have SIX finished objects! Oh...and I fell out of my chair at one point! Link to my channel is in my profile.

My sweet girl, Violet. She’s a very special sheep - stays in her own space until you really need some animal therapy. Whether you’re tired, sad, or contemplative - she’ll know and come over to stand by you. Today she gave me a kiss on the cheek as I sat and watched the flock, as if to say, it’s okay to be tired, you earned this rest.
Violet’s fleece will be coming back to us in two different batches of flock yarn in time for @mdsheepwoolfest . As always, @patreon people get a first look at all the yarn we have returning from the mill in the next month. There is always time to sign up! Just $5 a month can get you a TON of fun behind-the-scenes content (like first looks at flock yarns, lambs, secret projects, etc.) 🐏❤️ #flyingfibers #flyingfibersflock #knitwool #wearwool #lovewool #longwoollove #violettheleicesterlongwool #leicesterlongwool #shopsmall #knitlocal #wensleydale #shetlandsheep #sheep #knowyourfarmer #farmher #rarebreed #preservation

I’m back home on the farm after a week off for preparing for and then vending/teaching at #pghknitandcrochet . I am so grateful to be back with the animals, even though teaching was such a fantastic experience. Pictured here is Primrose checking out Johnny Bravo, our Polish rooster, this evening.

Happy 7th birthday to Pete, Penny and Charlotte. They were our first and only LAI babies and here are there birth day photos! 
LAI stands for laparoscopic artificial insemination, and is the best way to increase genetic diversity within your herd. Pete, Penny and Charlotte’s sires are in England, and they have lots of other relatives scattered around the USA. The downside is that it is an incredibly expensive procedure and does not guarantee pregnancy.
The next time we LAIed, we had 0% success rate, which was a tough pill to swallow for us. Since then the borders have been closed and we are unable to get new genetics in from England. So for now we embrace the sheep we have and selectively breed within our herd. If you have any more questions about sheep or wool, I’m at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet festival all weekend to chat, and I have some yarn left from Pete, Penny & Charlotte’s 2018 year! You also can send me a message on Insta, I’m more than happy to answer any questions.

Day 28 of #28daysofyourlys is Grand Finale! 
Thank you all for following along with this little Instagram prompt. I hope you have enjoyed getting to hear more about the yarn shop, and I am excited to get back to posting sheep things on this platform. I thought the grand finale would be a great way to say thank you. To everyone who likes posts, shares content, takes classes, buys supplies, comes to see the sheep, says hello at shows - thank you. This family-owned, woman-run business would be nowhere without the support of our customers and followers. We cannot believe that we are going into our 10th year as a bricks and mortar store, and we are blown away that we will soon be celebrating 3 years of Yorkshire Medley at @mdsheepwoolfest . So thank you all again, and I promise we will soon have more sheep-y and yarn-y goodness coming your way! 🐏❤️🐏

This girl right here is DEFINITELY carrying a lamb or two. When filming my @patreon video this morning, I noticed she had a suspicious lump on her side, and realized it was her right side! Don’t forget shepherds, left=lunch, right=rugrats . Man, she is a wild one, but her past shepherd has guaranteed she is a fabulous mother. Only time will tell! 😍🐏❤️

Day 21 of #28daysofyourlys is Throwback Thursday. 
Throwback to the very first day our little fiber arts studio opened Black Friday 2009. After years of traveling the East Coast doing fiber festivals, we put down our roots in Landisville, PA. Oh how much we have all grown up ❤️ Looking back at this photo and thinking about what went into changing over an old State Farm office into the shop it was then makes me smile. We continue to adapt and change with the ever-growing market, while still staying true to our mission of being the place to find ethical, sustainable, and local fibers and yarns.

This is wee Celeste and in the background, Raina enjoying their hay this morning. 
In the dyepot today, I’m dyeing up some of my stashed flock yarn for my Weekender sweater for our 2019 Sweater KAL! The yarn I am using is actually from Timi, who is Raina’s mother. 🐏🐏 There is still time to join our KAL, so feel free to check in tomorrow when we reopen!

Hello it is me, your friendly neighborhood FarmHer and her flock of sheep to tell you about some long forgotten historical tidbits of Flying Fibers yarn shop and some other fun facts!
1. We didn’t initially open as a yarn shop. My mum and I would travel around to various fiber festivals, and moved into the bricks and mortar space we are in now as a holding place for our fiber goodies between shows. We also had all of my mum’s looms, spinning wheels, and other tools in the shop so that she could use it as a studio space as she pleased. We would have limited open hours and then soon became known as the “yarn shop with strange hours” even though we weren’t really a full service yarn shop! 2010 rolled around and we decided to just go big or go home and become a full service yarn shop because that’s what the people wanted! Today we offer yarn, needles, notions, wool, roving, classes, equipment, and gift items for anyone and everyone who has an interest in crafts. 
2.  My mum (@flyingfibersjeri ) fell in love with Wensleydales over 30 years ago, but was only able to import the yarn into the USA back in the early 2000’s, and that’s how she became known as the Wensleydale lady. We were able to get the sheep in 2009 and haven’t looked back since!
3. We love serving each and every one of our customers. Helping them find their projects, or projects for a friend is the best part of working in a yarn shop! 
We can’t wait for you to visit us! ❤️🐏

Day 12 of the #fiberuarychallenge : favorite color. I LOVE color. I’m definitely not someone who wears all black all the time. I can’t, I won’t, and I’m not sorry! My favorite color is a toss up. If you walk into my house it’s clearly orange. I have orange art, and orange sofa, and a super rad orange and yellow chair I thrifted a few years ago. I also really love swampy greens. And yellow! - I could wear yellow every day. Basically, the warmer the color, the more I love it. Also - I know I’ve been a total failure at this challenge, so I’m just popping in with it now and then..
