A bit of North Ronaldsay on the wheel as part of my #britspinchallenge. Are you taking part? #northronaldsay #britishwool #wemakeyarn #spinnersofinstagram #handspinning #fleece
I should be packing up ready for @springintowool this weekend but I thought I’d just have a bit of peaceful spinning time to work on my #britspinchallenge . A little bit of lock spun #northronaldsay wool on the bobbin 😊 how’s your #challenge coming along? #britishwool #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #wemakeyarn #northronaldsaysheep #northronaldsaywool

Ok let’s see! Here is my yarn haul from #eyf2018 ! I’ll try to tag everyone too. There seems to be a definite theme here. 😂 only one project has plans which is the Celtic Yarn. I’m hoping to make  jumper that a lot of people were wearing by Ysolda. Did you buy with projects in mind or did you just get inspired like me? .

Today we got a whole load of North Ronaldsay Fibre in, both roving and yarn. Now we just need to bag it all up and then we'll have every shade in stock again.

Something for the weekend. 
My #WoolExploration participation has been abysmal. However, I am keeping up with posts, podcasts, and plans for future #WIPs. I have one sleeve left to do on my #NorthRonaldsay #Hetty cardigan and I really want to finish it this weekend. I carelessly left a spare ball of #wool on the floor overnight last week and #AncientCat managed to be sick on it. Obstacle overcome. Back to the #knitting.

Wishing you all a healthy, #WollyWeekend whatever you are up to.

Sourcing some wools to add to my material bank.  I have found a British wool called North Ronaldsay.  This wool comes from a sheep living on North Ronaldsay, a Scottish Island and they live off SEAWEED. I love finding connections.

Managed out to North Ronaldsay on the boat this weekend, beautiful bright skies, and warm, cosy fires #northronaldsay #scottigar #islandlife
The #northronaldsay #fleece I #felted yesterday is now drying nicely- it's a lovely fleece from a little ewe called 'Monique' who I had the pleasure of actually meeting - we had a chat😊- the north ronaldsay has a lovely creamy #wool with a grey undercoat. #rug #rugmaking #homedecor #homeaccessories
About to start an afternoon of heavy duty #felting with this lovely #fleece from the very petite and pretty 'Monique' #northronaldsay #northronaldsaysheep #rarebreed #britishsheep #heritagebreed

Washing fleeces is a mucky old business and it's a water hungry business too. I have come across a fermentation method that I've never tried - it's slow&stinky but it might just save my bath & drains from grime and #lanolin; I've decided that my small North Ronaldsay fleece from the petite 'Matilda' is going to be volunteered for this outdoor method - I just need a means of capturing a bucket load of rain water 1st

#28daysofyourlys Day 13 - Go Exotic!  Last fall we took orders for some North Ronaldsay roving.  This breed of sheep is hard to find as it can only live on the small island of North Ronaldsay, off the northern coast of Scotland.  They live on seaweed!  It's been a dream to spin, the result has been super squishy and light, but not quite fine enough for next to skin wear, can't imagine how toasty and warm the end product will be.  #spinbybreed #northronaldsay #planyourtripsaroundfiber #woolforthewin #i❤️spinning #justonemorereasontocrossthepond #ilovebeachcritters #noitsnotsandy #seeyoucanwearwoolonthebeach #darnyarnneedlesandthread #darnyarnharmony #lys #yarnshop #lyslife

“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

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

Inspired by the lovely @erickaeckles hand spun #woolexploration i decided to dig out my drop spindle again and have another go. Coincidentally the fluff i pulled out of my stash was some undyed North Ronaldsay which just so happens to be the first breed wool in the @knit_british Wool Exploration 2018 challenge. 
My swatch is knitted in mill spun wool from @blackeryarns and has been washed,  blocked and worn for one day (first tucked in the waistband of my jeans against my hip and then later draped over my shoulder against my neck). It's going for its second wash, block and wear tomorrow.

The fibre has been loosely spun and plied. It's a bit thick and thin and varies from lace to dk weight (🤔i really need to practice more! )  but i have about 50yds of yarn to knit with. If the fibre felt a bit rough and rustic in my hands whilst spinning, the spun yarn is actually surprisingly soft despite a halo of long, wiry fibres.  Looking forward to knitting it up! .

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.

look at @erickaeckles beautiful #NorthRonaldsay swatch. Lisa is taking part in the #KnitBritish #WoolExploration. Every month we’ll be looking at a different breed. There is still time to take part with North Ronaldsay. The deadline for finished swatch reviews is 28th December... Who can’t knock up a swatch in that time and give it a bit of an explore?

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 🌬

This evenings progress on #woolexploration with North Ronaldsay yarn from Lauriston Farm. The fuzziness of the yarn is lending itself well to colour work @erickaeckles did you find out whether the yarn is worsted or woollen spun? I'm not a fan of stranded knitting flat and did toy with the idea of knitting in the round and steeking but thought I may have to use the yarn in the swatch to finish a pair of mittens; that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it #northronaldsay #lauristonfarm #knitbritish #britishwool #maryjanemucklestone

Good day in North Ron. Me and @craigmcl123 getting filled wi pancakes #northronaldsay #cold #islelife #windyhole #life #work #renewableenergy
I have decided to work all my #woolexploration swatches using the Vivid blanket squares pattern by @tincanknits so that i can see how each different breed behaves over the same stitches. (I know I'm not the first person to do this but the pattern lends itself so well to this method of wool exploration). Swatching with North Ronaldsay is so far proving to be immensely satisfying.  In the ball it felt quite firm and crunchy but on the needles it is soft and smooth as it runs through my fingers. Loving the stitch definition of the lace pattern. Moving on now to those delicious garter bumps... .

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

All kinds of crazy, hectic busy stuff going on but today is a quiet day amidst the December whirlwind so I am making the most of it! 
Little dinky jumper bunting in the making for @knit_british 100 episode celebration using scraps of @westyorkshirespinners Jacob, some mohair/corriedale blend from #crookabeckfarm in Cumbria, a little left over Herdwick also from Crookabeck and a little of Blacker's #cornishtin. (The rumours are right by the way, they really are addictive. I may * have * to make a few more...) Later on I plan on starting my #woolexploration with this lovely crisp #northronaldsay (also from @blackeryarns ) (Ps continuing on the Knit British theme, have you heard the latest episode of the Louise's podcast yet? It's MY #woollymucker episode!! I have been so honoured to be one of Louise's woollymuckers this year and it was fab to chat to her about my knitty journey and share my favourite 'desert island yarns' . We had a right laugh!
