Presents From My Favorite Sheep

Lucky me!  I’ve had commercial yarn made from my favorite sheep Beatrice’s fleece for a really long while now.  It was uber expensive and took like 9 months to receive after I shipped her fleece out.  Do I knit or crochet?  Of course not, but was hoping to find someone lovely to make me something out of it someday.  That day has arrived!  My friend from Seattle, LimeRiot, knitted me the most gorgeous cowl and socks.  Aren’t they divine?  So professional!  That’s her winding the yarn to prep for knitting.  She’s wearing a Missing Willow Farm t-shirt and holding her very own Beatrice, one of five adorable dogs she and her husband share their home with.  If you’ve never visited her blog, you really must.  She’s so very talented.  You’ll find her at

We swapped a few crafty things.  I made her a pottery yarn bowl to assist with future knitting pursuits and used my new embroidery machine to make a kitchen towel with her great dane Quigley’s likeness on it.  Isn’t he handsome?!

    I feel so fortunate that I had a chance to work with Beatrice’s yarn. It’s so beautiful and it was really special to knit with fiber from a ewe I know!!
    I’m loving all of the wonderful items I received in return. My yarn bowl is already seeing a lot of use :).
