Autumn leaves

Just knitted these up

Pattern from Knit Today magazine, which I don't usually buy, but I've been looking for a good leaf pattern for various projects I have in mind. These ones are quite nice, a leaf shape and a maple leaf. The yarn came free with the magazine, not the best quality, but I loved the colours.  On closer inspection, there is a pattern for a unicorn hat and matching mitts inside - I may just have to do those too :)

Right place, right time..............

I ended up in Lyme Regis yesterday, and on the way down to the shore passed a charity shop that was just about to close; dived in for a rootle, and very glad I did!  I liberated all this Rowan cottony goodness for just £4, not sure what it's destined for yet, but the colours are beautiful, so it will involve stripes I should think. Very pleased.

This one's for me....................

Thought it about time I knitted something for myself!  So, here it is,  patter from Ravelry by Mary Scott Huff. The wool I've chosen is a lambswool/silk mix in a tan sort of colour from Kingcraig Fabrics of Brora

Sheep at the County Show 2013

A few of my favourites, although it was  very hard to choose favourites!

I was thrilled to actually get to see Galway sheep for the first time - I've only fairly recently discovered this breed, and here was a pen of them in deepest rural Dorset! Lovely sheep. 3rd down on the left in the mosaic; also two very beautiful Herdys, one of my all-time favourite breeds, 5th down on right and 6th down on left. Had a lovely chat about Hebrideans and Shetlands with their respective owners, and lusted after a pen of beautiful little North Ronaldsays - top two photos. Good displays of Dorset sheep too.
