From sheep’s coat to a handbag !

As part of the Roscommon Lamb Festival this weekend there was a Sheep Shearing/knitting event.

The sheep were sheared

The wool was rolled

The wool was then spun

The wool was then knitted

And a couple of hours later made into a handbag!

There was lots of interest in the knitting which was great. Next year, I hope to have all the ladies from the knitting group join in …. you’ve been warned :o)
