Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles

Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles! Our farm mission is to enjoy and promote the wonderful diversity of the Shetland breed by fully utilizing to the best of our ability all they have to offer historically. We believe the best preservation and management of this breed includes it's full spectrum of history. We encourage old and new shepherds alike to join in the fun by engaging in fiber arts, especially spinning and knitting, as this breed is so intimately linked with those aspects of the arts.

Wooly, Fuzzy Landscape

Wow!  I've never seen it like this!
It was beautiful
Trees seem more like single-legged sheep than trees...

These photos were taken yesterday here on our farm.  Moist air had come in, leaving everything looking like a winter wonderland!  Today, the storm predicted to hit us wasn't so bad.  We got a few inches, but everything is 'winter-normal'.  Hope the storm did not bring bad times to any of you out there!  It truly IS a very, very, very nice time to stay home and knit! lol

P.S....yes, new knitting needles ARE on my list! lol  Seems the actually DO wear out!
