Oops already 3rd December and I realise I missed my monthly round-up of “hen happenings” . . .
not that there was much to report. Gals are all fine but on something of a go-slow. A total of 51 eggs for November (with 3 hens) – I think that’s an all-time low.

concerning Ziva. Here she is sporting a lycra body-suit because I took her in to be neutered on 1st December. She’s not quite 7 months old and weighed in at 2.8kg but I wanted to get her spayed as early as possible. Tis done. She’s getting used to the body suit which is a much better option than the one the vet staff made. And with colder weather on the way, she seems quite happy to stay indoors.
And, last but not least . . .
I’ve cast on a new knitting project. This is a free pattern I stumbled across years ago, and for which I have had the yarn in my stash since xmas 2018.
The pattern, being a Rowan, actually calls for “worsted” weight and I asked Mr Tattoo for a lovely King Cole Comfort Aran back in 2018. Tension obviously won’t work, and that’s why this yarn and pattern have been sitting in the drawer all these years. However, I did some maths, and am going to make the pattern work with my aran yarn (I hope). It’s very easy knitting, just knits & purls, and growing very fast.
