You lucky people...

After months of inactivity here you go, 2 posts in January.

I have photos of some more finished projects:

This is the Skinny scarf I knit for Paul, he wanted something very light and open, it's a pattern I lifted from a sock book and I used Rowan 4 ply Pure Wool. He wears it all the time which, I guess, means he likes it!

This is Pretty Thing (Ravelry link) by the Yarn Harlot, knit for my brother's partner Julie. It is knit in Fyberspates Unicorn yarn (a mystery yarn, the composition of which will be revealed at the end of the quest).
It was knit with the remnants of the yarn used for Julie's Veyla and Ishbel Beret. I still have a few metres left!

In addition to all my UFOs listed in the last post, I am working on a sample garment for one of Rowan's new Spring/Summer yarns. More on that next time.

For those who have not had the opportunity to visit Once A Sheep I thought I would list all the products that I stock and in future I will just post updates/what's new.

I have been asked (repeatedly!) when the website will be up and running and the short but highly unsatisfactory answer to that at the moment is I don't know. It's so busy in the actual shop and Paul (the technical half) works away so it's all taking rather longer than I would have liked. I can take telephone orders and of course there's always a nice cup of tea to be had in the shop itself.

See you soon.


  1. Glad you are busy, always happy to hear of yarn shops that are doing a lot of volume! I love the pretty thing, my kids call them "Neck Fings". I would holler at them when getting ready for daycare, "Do you have your neck thing?" and my 3 year old who couldn't pronounce "th" would reply, "I can't find my neck fing". They are in their teens and we still call them neck fings...

  2. Hi Karen - your shop is gorgeous and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. So much yummy goodies (and biscuits).
