Lambing all done

That’s lambing all done for this year, 8 out of 11 ewes lambed giving us a total of 12 lambs. Not a commercial amount but enough to maintain the flock and keep the freezers full! 

They’re a fairly eclectic bunch, a nice mix of colours  – white, moorit, grey, fawn, black – and patterns – katmoget, bleset, kranset, blaget, krunet (for explanation of types see the following link: http://www.shetland-sheep.org.uk)

Here are some pictures of the lambs

Fair Isle with a twist

I’ve been busy developing a new pattern in polymer clay which I’m quite excited about. Its my contribution to the wealth of Fair Isle patterns that abound these days.WP_20170501_003

All ready and waiting to be made into pendants and matching earrings.
