I keep two coloured sheep here, Paul and Kelly. They are just the cutest sheep ever and I love them dearly! I keep them for their fleece as well as their company and they were recently shawn. I gave the fleece to my Mum who is the most talented woman I know (do I sound bias?) She spun the fleece and then knitted me this amazing shawl! It is so soft and cosy! I just can't wait for winter now so I can wrap myself up in it! She used Kelly's fleece for this. The photos don't really show the right colour but Kelly's wool is dark chocolate brown and Paul is a slate grey. Last year Mum spun Paul's fleece and knitted my a plain jumper and it is sooooo warm!
Here is the pattern Mum used for the shawl.
