Wool on Sundays – 26 (wool and knit)

 

Welcome to Wool on Sundays – 26!
This week, I had an email from Emily’s Mum, who blogs over at Quilty Doings. She has a friend who keeps a small flock of Rare Breed Ryeland sheep as a hobby and he currently has some really beautiful wool for sale. If you are looking for yarn for a special project, this might well be perfect for you. Rare Breed animals, farmed on a small scale are, of course, the best guarantee of an authentic, top quality product – especially in these days when, sadly, commercial breeders are focused on producing the greatest quantity at the lowest cost – and it’s always nice to see the actual sheep that wore your jumper before you did! If you pop over to Quilty Doings, you can see this beautiful wool and some lovely photos of the sheep it came from.

Meanwhile, I have done a little knitting…

This little boy is called Knit. You may have seen him earlier in the week in the Little People in Progress line up.

If his jumper actually looks a bit big, that is because he was going to be the 9″ cloth doll. Last night, however, I discovered I’d sewn his hair and face onto the 81/2″ doll. Since I don’t really want to make two dolls basically the same, I considered giving the jumper to the 9″ doll and making him a new one but in the end I decided we’d just call it growing room :)

If you have any wool or yarn projects to share, finished or not, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are:

1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn.
2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics.
3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up.
4). Visit anyone else who links.

Wishing you a happy week :)

    He is so cute and I love the “growing room” in the jumper. Makes him even cuter! Sorry I am so late visiting. I was shattered when I got back from Dublin and did nothing at all yesterday.

    Who would have thought half an inch would make so much difference! The colour of his jumper goes beautifully with his hair. Knit is handsome and I can't wait to see the rest of the tribe all equally nicely dressed.

    We know how quickly kids – especially boys – can sprout, so he definitely needs growing room :D I'm rather partial to redheaded boys – I grew one myself! Going from past experience, you may want to check his pockets and see if he's carrying either rocks, nails or slimey things from the nearby pond! ;)
