The Worlds Tiniest Black Welsh ewe

HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone!

It's breeding season and the new rams "Udo" is shown here with a group of older ewes. And here is an optical illusion - The ewe in the background looks like a teeny, tiny fairy-lamb standing on the back of the other ewe.

It is nice to have some time to sit and knit. This is a pair of work mittens in progress. The pattern is from the "Folk Mittens" by Marcia Lewandowski. The yarn is from my corriedale sheep - both the natural white and natural black are 3 ply worsted weight, so the mittens are thick.
