Having finished my Owl last week and put it in my shop, I intended to start work on another sheep. But then I got distracted, as you do! I’ve had this totally gorgeous yarn in my stash for nearlly a year and I’ve been longing to knit something with it.
It’s Gotland DK from Well Manor Farm, who raise their own sheep and produce their own wool. It’s a lovely soft grey with a slight haze, and it’s a dream to knit with. It’s so snuggly that it just had to be a little grey rabbit. No pics yet as she’s in pieces while I decide how big to make her, how long her legs should be, how to do her ears etc. I’ve also got some hand dyed blue yarn from Well Manor so she will have a little dress too.
The yarn doesn’t seem to be for sale on the website, so I hope I can get some more for a kit. Well Manor Farm is near Farnham, which is not far from me, so maybe I can visit. Has anyone else been there?
See what everyone else has been up to over on Handmade Monday.
