Sheeped

I've got another FO to show you. This one was not knit by me, but Mom.
Sheep Heid by Kate Davies. Mom fell in love with the pattern and immediately set to dyeing up some Alley Cat in the proper colours. The pattern was designed to showcase the natural colours of Shetland sheep, but Mom and I both agreed - the hat needed a little more pop.
What's better than burgundy sheep? The hat ended up being a little to small for Mom, so I got to keep it as a modelling fee.
If you want one like it, you're in luck - Mom put together some kits with the same colours (Pattern available through Ravelry.)

Or you could make a doggy coat...

It looks stunning, but that's not surprising. I love that pattern, but I think the one I'll knit will be the Scatness Tam or Caller Herrin cos I've got those patterns.

I was just going to say you need to do kits with those colours.
Lucky you getting to keep it. It suits you so well.
