Sometimes a change is a good thing. I haven’t abandoned my current, secretive knitting project; but I need to knit something that will progress a bit. Plus the birthdays and babies are piling up, and the Christmas one can wait a bit. Sorry, Pip. My sanity depends upon it. So from this:
To this wonderful, sheepy yarn I bought at my favourite Wool Shed yesterday:
It’s undyed Flying Flock wool from The Scottish Wildlife Trust. This flock of sheep are flown around the wilds of Scotland by the Trust to preserve grassland habitat through their grazing. Their wool is spun at the New Lanark Mill for the Wool Shed, and they have their own blog by shepherdess Laura.
Can’t wait to get it on the needles. Although the chances of sitting in the scene below, unbothered during waking hours is very, very slim.
