Cat versus Sheep . . .

Hello peeps - so much craft stuff going on at the moment - hence the lack of posts, but I thought I'd share some cute photos of our cat's first encounters with my neighbours sheep and lambs.  This is her first year during the lambing season - she was quite fascinated!  I documented a little encounter one morning last week . . . . .

Looking very interested . . . .


Getting closer and checking no-one's looking . . .


A little closer still . . .


This little lamb is moving in on the action . . .


Up close and personal (Awwwwww!) . . .


What -  you don't want to play!?  A bit indignant . . .


Looking sideways . . .


Looking at other avenues of exploration . . .


A better view from up here . . .


Aw, come on - the sheep have finally completely lost interest - good try though 'Ji-Ji'!


Well, it was a fun thing to watch - even although I only went out to take a photo of my knitting as it is very sheepish looking . . . .


I'm using some North Ronaldsay yarn from Orkney - the sheep graze on seaweed on the island - I was so intrigued, I had to try it out - it's lovely to knit with.  Very sheepy and soft and natural - here's the stage I'm at today with it . . .


Looking interesting but taking much longer than I had thought it would - ain't that always the way with knitty things!  I'll tell you more about this scarf in another post - time to have a relaxing morning Sunday coffee I think - have a lovely weekend!

Haha, love all the little cat vs sheep photos. So cute. Cats are funny wee creatures aren't they?
Your knitting looks gorgeous. That yarn is perfect for that lacy pattern isn't it? I really must try lace knitting. Going to go and look for that yarn, seaweed eating sheep sound fun.
Hope you are well x

I did smile at the cat and lamb. I have never tried wool from Ronaldsay but your scarf certainly looks wonderful.

For somebody that was reluctant to get a cat you seem pretty smitten to me Alison! Cats know how to get adoration! Love your knitting, it looks really delicate x
