Last November I joined a spinning group in this area and started spinning again so when the information arrived about the AGM weekend I decided to enter some items in the wool cup. These are the socks that I made and I also entered a lace scarf, they were entered as part of the Ireland Region entry and we got a 'Highly Commended'.
Karla this morning, just after shearing
We have finished lambing and are really pleased with our lambs. Once lambing is over it is time to think about who we want to take to the summer shows, so we have chosen one ewe, Karla, (pictured left just after shearing), two shearling ewes and one shearling ram, which we have clipped bare. We also have our eye on one ram lamb (so far) and two ewe lambs to show this year. The first show will be Flavours of Fingal show in late July so the sheep have just enough time to grow back their wool before showing.
