Thank you @mollyb48 for knitting my fab hat! It’s a lovely warm reminder of sunny Orkney days, and keeps my ears warm too! #orkney #northronaldsaysheep #northronaldsay #handknit #winter
“It’s my fucking podcast”. I have only recently discovered the @knit_british podcast and I can’t tell you how much I love listening to it. Not only does it inspire my knitting but it educates me on the wonders of British yarn. As a Scot I adore Louise’s voice and how homely it sounds to me but on this episode I can’t help but smile every time I hear a different Scottish accent - and there is quite a variety on here! #podcast #knit #knitting #knittingaddict #scotland #shetland #knitbritish #northronaldsay #british #scottish #scot #accent #heart #love #proud #late #kb100 #knittersofinstagram #homeawayfromhome #instagood

#12daysofknitsmas Day 12 - #woolexploration: my swatch in @lauristonfarm North Ronaldsay wool after two wears, two washes and a distressing! It's held up really well and I'm now daydreaming of a chocolate brown cardi in this yarn 💭❤️ Used @mjmucklestone #150scandinavianknittingdesigns for the stranded knitting pattern #lauristonfarm #northronaldsay #knitbritish #britishwool

It's a casting on sort of day, I love these rich, subtle tones of overdyed dark brown North Ronaldsay yarn. #knitting #yarn #yarnaddict #handdyed #handdyedyarn #northronaldsay
Busy spinning afternoon. Finished yarn to make me something (188m! Longest yet!), gave in and ordered another 1kg of waste fibre and spun up this just now! 100g of North Ronaldsay fluff into 76.5m of chunky worsted-spun. N Ronaldsay are native to Scotland and eat seaweed! #scottishsheep #britishsheep #naturalcolour #northronaldsay #northronaldsaysheep #sheep #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #yarn #spinning #handspinning

My North Ronaldsay swatch is done. It’s now getting a long soak before it gets a good block. I did some garter stitch, some stocking stitch and a fishtail 🐟 🐠 lace panel. This is the first time I’ve knitted with this wool and I’ve been really impressed. I’m really glad I decided to take part in the @knit_british #woolexploration for 2018. It’s great to learn new things.** **with apologies for this mornings weird blueish winter light

I’ve been baking Christmas cakes with my daughter this afternoon and it has to be said, when she is a bit older, she is going to be WAY better at baking than me. The cakes are in the oven now so I’m treating myself to a few minutes sit down and a quick cast on of a swatch for the @knit_british #woolexploration for 2018. This wool is from the endangered North Ronaldsay breed of sheep from the Orkney Islands. These sheep live for most of the year on the foreshore and eat mainly seaweed. They are small sheep but are incredibly hardy. This wool is the natural colour (so, undyed) and smells super sheepy 🐑. I’m really excited to see how it knits up.

Beautiful North Ronaldsay wool, swatched for the @knit_british wool exploration using the cable pattern for the circlet sweater. I'm not sure if the wool has enough drape to be well suited for that pattern but it is absolutely lovely - sturdy, with a lovely halo and good stitch definition. For now I'll keep the swatch in waiting until I come across the right sweater pattern 🌬

I’m so excited to be taking part in the @knit_british #woolexploration project during 2018 and my first parcel of sheepiness has arrived.  First on the list will be yarn from  #northronaldsaysheep (the dark brown skein) who are incredibly hardy and live on a diet of seaweed. And despite what you might expect of a yarn from such an animal - coarse, scratchy etc - it is not at all like that. Produced and spun on #northronaldsay it is soft, squishy and smells amazing. Now, to the knitting!

All purchased from the yarny treasure trove @brityarn

The first square for #woolexploration with North Ronaldsay. It's much softer to knit than I expected on squishing the ball. It's got a haze of guard hair that isn't too scratchy but I wouldn't make a scarf out of this. I think it would make a toasty jumper and because of the hazy nature a colour yoke would look amazing ♥

Really enjoying swatching with North Ronaldsay DK for the Knit British Wool Exploration. Just about to distress it before the second blocking so thought I had better record progress first just in case! So far I’ve been mightily impressed with this yarn. Lovely to work with and makes a cosy fabric. #knitbritish #woolexploration #northronaldsay #britishwool #seriousswatching #blackeryarns
My new squeeze! I'm taking some time to join @knit_british in her #WoolExploration journey. I've #caston on some beautiful and rather special #NorthRonaldsay #wool from #LauristonFarm which is both #organic and #biodynamic. I'm using their undyed DK #yarn and the pattern is #Hetty by #AndiSatterlund.

Happy weekend all!
My little fuzzy Freida and her mum, Esther. I adore these two so much! They say that sheep are stupid, but I'm not too sure..I've penned the girls up (with the help of a shepherd friend!) at the back of the barn using the hay bales as a windbreak, and whilst the others are ambevilant, Esther has learnt to listen for my voice to call for feeding whilst positioning herself so she can watch the entrance to the barn..just to make sure that I'm obeying her summons! whilst Frieda stands on her back legs with the front on top of the hurdle waiting for me to refill their grub tins. Progress indeed as little Frieda arrived here as a baby and wouldn't let anyone touch her. 🐑 #sheep #winter #farm #countrylife #slowliving #wool #nativebreeds #northronaldsay #scotland #wales #photography #nature #petsofinstagram #farming

A swatch off the needles! #NorthRonaldsay #WoolExploration
Swatching! I'm pretty familiar with #NorthRonaldsay as a yarn so this is really demonstrating how different it can be depending on who spun it and how it's spun #WoolExploration

Today on the blog I've got more information on Wool Exploration. North Ronaldsay is the first breed we are looking at together. Because its going in our January episode we need to review our swatches before the end of next month. Head over to knitbritish.net for more info and seek out the #woolexploration thread in the KB ravelry group.⠀

#wovemberinstachallenge Day 6 is Sheep These are the fabulous North Ronaldsay sheep that graze the seawall at Lauriston Farm near Maldon in Essex. 
PS I haven't added days 2, 3, 4 or 5 yet - I'm intending to catch up by the end of the month but it doesn't matter, does it? I am generally terrible at keeping up with this sort of thing, work gets in the way. Maybe I should plan it all in advance and pre-schedule postings but that kind of takes the spontaneity and fun out of it for me.

A quick knitted wool hat. 
Made using the #toft Peggys Cove pattern and using #northronaldsaywool that I purchased when visiting Orkney in the summer.The North Ronaldsay sheep feed on seaweed on the northern most Orkney Isle. 
The wool is quite course and although more challenging to knit with,  I enjoyed it as it felt like "proper knitting.
