Sheep - from lamb to loom, by Kate Lynch

I bought this book on Monday at the Glastonbury Wool Festival. I was lucky enough to meet Kate Lynch herself, who happily signed my copy. Lovely, lovely book,can't wait to get stuck into it. Above is my favourite picture from the book - Christine knitting - the original of which was on show at her table. If I'd had the money, I'd have bought it there and then. Will report back when I've read it - shouldn;t be long!

A good morning's work :)
