Now playing

Currently drying on my cookie jar is a hat knit from all four colors of our Shetlands. Four colors is a little busy, but I decided to do it this way for the Made in Nevada category at the Nevada State Fair this weekend. Since this is the first hat I have knit from all our boys, I’ve decided it will be going on my head. Besides, I’m going to need a smaller hat after Friday.

I’m pleased with the rich colors that come from these fleeces. Though it's not apparent, the center back wether is a chocolate moorit. Center front is Mr. Mouth, also known as Mickey - Mickey Mouth, the talkingest sheep ever. He's their front man, always the first to see what's going on, also, willing to be petted by grandkids. They all belong to Ian.
