My Kitchen Table
Saturday, February 5, 7:31pm

Currently my kitchen table

I guess you could say I love to knit, or knitting is a passion of mine.  Always have to have more than one project going at a time.  It doesn’t matter what season, I knit winter, spring, summer, fall.  Thank you to my stepgrandmother for teaching me and showing me my first knit 1, purl 2 so many years ago.



Picking up where I left off. . . .

Finally getting going again on my scarf project using our very own sportweight yarn “Egg Nog” a pure delight to work with – it glows, it’s plush and has a wee bit of lanolin making hands feel soft.  Now ready to start fair isle.   Love this pattern & can’t wait to finish.  Keep posted for progress.  Yarn available online store & Etsy shop.  Choose cozy, timeless wool – never a disappointment!


First Pumpkin …. and it’s a beauty!
Sunday, August 15, 10:29pm

Nature’s Beauty

What a treasure.  Nature’s beauty & bounty at its best.  First official pumpkin this year.  A bit early maybe but a welcome  surprise.  There’s something about pumpkins that make you smile.  Fall is almost around the corner but take heed, there’s still a lot of summer left and we may even delight in an “Indian Summer.”

Easy, Breezy 4th of July

Sweet Lilacs

Happy Spring everyone.  If I could send you the smell of the lilacs I would.  For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, I must say it is heavenly.  They are one of the reasons I moved back to the Northeast from Florida (besides rock walls).

On another note, be on the lookout for our new sportweight yarn in 100% Finnsheep wool.  I’m excited and can’t wait!  And, today all the sheep took to the pasture after being in barn for the long winter.  On happy day!

A Sapphire Blue Sky
Monday, February 22, 12:00pm

Yesterday’s winter sky…

Could not believe the sky color yesterday.  Didn’t know what to call it but then came up with “sapphire” blue.  Being a lover of the stone, it reminded me of its beautiful color.  So, even if you are not a fan of winter, how could you not love this photo.  Crisp white & blue with a poke of red.  It’s what winter is all about.

Winter’s Wool Coat

Here’s our Anna… all warm and wooly and enjoying the cold temps.  Love her little legs poking out.


Our Holiday Photo with Bridgette
Saturday, December 26, 9:47pm

We love our amazing Bridgette

Here’s our Bridgette.  My everything dog.  She loves her life on the farm.  She runs, hunts, kisses the sheep, plays with branches, flips twine in the air, perches on the top step of the barn, & front steps looking out into the pasture for undesirables.  She’s smart, friendly, listens, is affectionate and is my loyal companion.  Love her to the moon and back!  Happy Holidays everyone . . .

Milestone Day for Luke
Saturday, November 28, 10:16pm

Today is a milestone day for Luke.  Today is his birthday and he is 15 yes 15 years old.  Hard to believe.  He was Doug’s little shadow.  Followed him everywhere.  I remember the day we went to pick him out.  He was so small he fit in the palm of Doug’s hand.  A mere few weeks old.  We went back to get him when he was 8 weeks old and the rest is history.  Today he is enjoying laying on my robe in his little nook.  Can’t see or hear that well anymore but who cares.  Each new day is a blessing to have Luke in it.  We love you Lukie!

Happy Halloween and a goodbye to Ollie
Saturday, October 31, 8:44pm



Here’s Ollie, my always humble, gentle, sweet soul.  Always up for my antics.  Sadly, Ollie crossed the Rainbow Bridge in July.  My gate greeter every morning.  I couldn’t write about Ollie until now.  His presence is sooo missed.  Certain ones steal your heart.  Ollie was one of them.  RIP Ollie.  I’ll never forget you.

This Photo Sums up Fall with Ye Olde Maple Tree
Monday, October 19, 10:10pm

Beautiful Fall

We have had a beautiful Fall.  Here’s a photo of one of our old maple trees.  Everyday was an ahh moment seeing these trees turn a tapestry of color.

This past weekend would have been the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival.  It was cancelled this year, went virtual instead.  It was very missed by one and all.  We can only hope next year’s festival (October 16 & 17, 2021) will be held in person.

So, although Fall is not over yet, we can still enjoy its colors whether in person or photo.


Everyday is National Dog Day!
Saturday, August 29, 9:23pm

Bridgette. . . our sunshine!

Here’s Bridgette, our English Shepherd.  She is my barn buddy, my loyal companion, my best friend.  Words can’t explain everything she adds to a day so to put it simply, we all love her to pieces and celebrate dog day everyday.  Let’s not forget our Dachshunds & Beagle – all who make our farm a happy place.

Choose Wool
Saturday, August 22, 10:16pm

The beauty of wool.

Choose wool and save the earth.  Choose wool, choose the world.  Wool is a breathing fiber that keeps your temperature regulated for warm or cold conditions.  Wool is odor resistant, renewable, biodegradable, sustainable, adds nutrients back into the soil and ocean and is naturally safe.

Pictured here are 7 of my wool yarns available online or Etsy shop.  Choose a color, choose a weight, choose a pattern and above all, choose the beauty of wool.

Friday, May 8, 9:12pm

Meg & Baby Lamb

Love this photo of my beloved Meg, a mom back in 2011.  What a terrific, caring mom she was of her little lambs.  I think of her so often & cherish those 12 years of moments we had together.  To all who mother, Happy Mother’s Day!

While staying at home….

Capelet using my dearest Meg

Hi everyone….  While staying at home due to the current conditions, I’ve been busy hand spinning and knitting.

Here’s a capelet I just finished with roving from my dearest Meg knitted with size 8 needles and using approximately 350 yards of yarn.  It was lots of fun to knit.  Now on to the next project!



My Mom’s Yarn
Sunday, March 8, 9:37pm

In Mom’s Memory

Here is a photo of a hat I knitted with yarn my mom bought 10 years ago.  She didn’t live long enough to use it so I just did in her memory.

I remember the day we went shopping for it and her starting a scarf but she didn’t get very far.  Recently, I found a pattern using varigated colors and I remembered this yarn!   Out came my stash of assorted wool yarns & low and behold it was there and I started knitting like crazy.

I think she would have loved this hat and would have worn it proud.

Sweet Peas
Monday, February 17, 9:15pm

Thump, thump goes my heart….

Here are my 2 sweet peas…Ellie Mae on left and Kasper on right.  Can’t get enough of these two.  Ellie Mae is a Bluefaced Leicester ewe lamb & Kasper is a Finn ram lamb.  Love them to pieces.

Winter Knitting….For the love of socks!
Monday, February 3, 8:53pm

Here is an example of one of my winter knitting projects.  Socks are knitted with our 100% wool sportweight yarn named “Egg Nog.”  I used 1 skein, size 2 needle.  This yarn knits up so, so pretty.   I’ve already started another project with the same yarn.  This time gloves and size 2 needle again.  I must be crazy but love small needles!!

Visit our online store to purchase yarn.

Mary Had A Little Lamb
Thursday, May 30, 8:56pm

On May 24, 2019 this sweet poem was 189 years old.  Written in 1830 by Sarah Josepha Hale it “hales” as one of our classic nursery rhymes today.  We thank little Sarah for giving us unforgetable words that will live on forever!

Happy Mother’s Day from all of us!

Happy Spinning!


Happy St. Distaff Day – January 7, 2019
Friday, January 4, 7:18pm


I know I’m a few days early but thought I’d post this photo and description so everyone can learn, attend spin-ins  and prepare for this fun day.

Let me tell you a little about it….. According to old English tradition St. Distaff Day was the 1st day after the 12 days of Christmas and the 1st Monday after the feast of Epiphany.  This marked the day women resumed their household chores which included spinning!  But, this day wasn’t all about work.  Mischievous young men would try to set fire to their flax or wool and in return, the ladies would retaliate by dousing pails of water on their heads!  In other words, it was a day for practical jokes & family fun.

So, all my fellow spinners….enjoy your day, spin till your hearts content but remember to keep a pail of water close by!!

Happy New Year- 2019
Sunday, December 30, 1:00pm

Hi everyone,

Just a little note to wish all of you a very happy, healthy, exciting, prosperous, peaceful new year.

I found this adorable vintage Christmas card which I thought was a perfect expression of bright and cheerful, fun and frolick wishes.

Here’s to new beginnings, new goals and new surprises.  For all of you who wanted to learn knitting, spinning, crocheting or whatever  what a great time to start.  And, being winter in many places a perfect time to take out the wooly yarn and create!  New yarns will be had next year and will be online and on Etsy.

For now, best wishes.

Gail from Will-O-Wool Sheep Farm & all the sheep!

NYS Sheep & Wool Festival – Another Fabulous Year!
Saturday, October 27, 8:34pm

The NYS Sheep and Wool Festival was last weekend.  What a wonderful event!  Blustery and very Fall-like it was a perfect day for walking the event booths and rows and rows of vendors while snuggling up in your cozy wool sweaters & hats!  One of my favorites is the display booth of different breeds of sheep.  There I got to see the Finnsheep and Bluefaced Leicester among many others.

Pictured here are the ribbons I won for handspun yarn.  Left to right are Meg, singles, Evie, singles, Jasper, 2 ply and Anna, 2 ply.

As always, I am delighted and excited about my winnings this year.  On to next year – October 19, 2019!


Meet Bridgett – our new English Shepherd farm buddy
Friday, August 31, 9:05pm


Our newest addition to the farm is our English Shepard, Bridgett.  Now 4 months old.  What a fabulous dog & companion she is.  The breed was brought to America by English and Scottish settlers.  The name Bridgett is Scottish meaning strength, power, fire & poetry.  Slowly being introduced to our sheep, she will be a perfect guardian for them.  We love her.


Happy 4th of July from Ollie & the Gang!
Friday, June 29, 10:16pm

Our soon to be new breed…the Bluefaced Leicester
Tuesday, June 12, 9:48pm

Hi everyone!

Very excited to be adding the Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) to our flock of sheep.  Fell in love with this breed at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival.   Arriving at the end of August are 3 ewes and and 1 ram lamb from a farm in Vermont.  So….it looks like we’ll be breeding this fall for the first time in 6 years!  The BFL’s are known for their curly, fine, lustrous fleece, roman nose and distinct blue tone skin.

Stay posted for more updates and pictures!

Thursday, March 29, 10:08pm

Here’s our Ollie looking a lot like the Easter bunny.   What a good sport to pose in those “big ears.”  His personality certainly shines through in this photo.

Could spring finally be here?  Only on the calendar these days.  Still cold and gray but that brutal winter is behind us so it’s only warm and green from here.

Ollie…the sheep bunny

Our Lilly
Saturday, January 27, 8:01pm

Our Lilly Belle

Time to pay homage to our farm family matriarch Lilly who is 12 years old.  She’s a one in a million Black Welsh beauty.  In fact, she’s our very first Black Welsh that we purchased so many years ago.  I remember that day so well, traveling up to a farm in Utica, NY.  We picked her out among a room full of ewes.  A great mom to Taffline, Winny and Tegan, and a loyal companion to all of us humans and her sheepmates.  Now, living out her golden years on the farm.  We love you Lilly!!

Happy New Year!
Saturday, January 6, 3:18pm

Happy 2018 everyone!  Here’s hoping your new year is bright and shining just like the moon over the barn!

Whatever your wishes and goals are this year, may you achieve great success and satisfaction.  For those of you who do not knit, why not try?  Spin, why not try?  Weave, why not try?  Actually anything that you’ve been dreaming of doing or creating you can achieve!

New Year’s Eve Moon over Barn

Best wishes,

From all of us at Will-O-Wool Sheep Farm!


Our Sweet Charlotte…..Already for Christmas!
Sunday, December 17, 7:03pm

Our Christmas Charlotte

Here is an adorable photo of my lamb Charlotte wearing her red plaid scarf looking very festive.  What a patient girl she was as I fiddled with that scarf every which way, trying to tie a perfect bow than having her pose.  (The hay was a good incentive!).

Wishing all a joyous Christmas filled with peace, love, good will, and happiness this season and throughout the coming year!


4th Annual Dickens on the Delaware, Callicoon, NY
Sunday, December 10, 2:45pm

Another great year and what a festive tradition for Callicoon.   Steeped in the holiday spirit and looking like a page out of Charles Dickens the town steps back in time and turns into a Dickens winter wonderland.  And we did indeed have snow yesterday.  There were lots of vendors, activities and joy in the air!  Always a fun event & looking forward to next year already!

That’s me enjoying Dickens Day!

Our Mascot Willy

Our Willy

The photo in the above banner is also Willy but a much younger one.  He was first born on the farm to Maggie, our first sheep that we bought at Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival in 2007.  My how time flies.  Keep on going Willy…we all love you to pieces!!

Super fun jewelry class at 2017 Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival
Saturday, October 21, 2:45pm

Had to share my new spinning technique.  It’s handspun wire core yarn.  At yesterday’s class, we created batts with our own color schemes.  We were then taught how to use jewelry wire as a core to handspin our carded roving over the wire.  What fun & what endless possibilities for jewelry making!  I can see already I’ll be buying lots of wire for this new spinning technique!

My handspun wire core yarn for jewelry making!

We went to pick up Alli (baa baa black sheep) and couldn’t resist the badger face lamb.  Her colors are amazing!  I can’t wait to spin her fleece next year.  The Finnsheep have been a wonderful edition to our flock of Border Leicesters and Black Welsh Mountain Sheep.  Not only do they have a beautiful soft fleece but they are like having puppy dogs around.  They are warm and affectionate and love to nibble your finger tips!  Stay in touch for more pictures of little Anna and Alli as they venture out into our world at Will-O-Wool Sheep Farm!


Why not try spinning this summer?

Hand spinning – the perfect summer project to learn.  Spinning outdoors (or indoors) is a wonderful way to relax. Become one with your wheel and experience the feel of the fiber going through your fingers.  It is mesmerizing!   Here at Will-O-Wool Sheep Farm we have beautiful roving that hand spinners just adore.  Pictured here is our natural white Border Leicester roving.  This roving dyes beautifully and can also be used for felting and craft projects.  Priced at $2.50/oz.  Pick up at the farm or shop our online store or Etsy shop.

Shearing Day!

Well, it’s that time of year and a little bit late due to the frigid weather we have been having.

A special thank you to Nancy who shears my sheep every year and does a wonderful job.  Pictured here is Nancy with our mascot Willy getting a good haircut or “wool cut.”

It takes the sheep a few days to get used to being “wool less” but it triples my space in the barn.  Amazing how much footage each sheep takes with a full wool coat!

Warm regards to all,




Happy New Year from your warm, wooly friends at Will-O-Wool Sheep Farm!

2014 NYS Sheep and Wool Festival, Rhinebeck, NY
Wednesday, November 5, 7:06pm

The NYS Sheep and Wool Festival has come and gone.  It is the most fabulous weekend.  Kind of like my Christmas.  I always enter my hand spun yarn and hand knitted garments in the competitions.  This year was the highlight for me.  My FIRST BLUE RIBBON for hand spun yarn!!  Something I’ve been striving for and many years in the making.  Since I am a self-taught spinner this blue ribbon was an accomplishment beyond  belief!  The fleece was from my favorite ewe Meg.  She is a Border Leicester and has the most beautiful roving to spin.  And, her natural color is gorgeous!  I love you Meg!!

Aside from my personal achievements, the festival was terrific.  I took a hand carding class on Sunday which was very good and of course the vendors were great not to mention the inspiration and knowledge gained!  Looking forward to next year already.
