With temperatures dropping in to the sub-zero range, we are enjoying our newly finished soft, warm and snuggly cowl. Knit in our farm grown, 3-ply, bulky yarn this is a heavy-weight cowl that is perfect for the coldest of winter weather. The Chalice Cowl pattern by Thea Colman is a quick, fun knit, and we love the way our sem-solid Bourgogne color-way shows off that cable knit on the bias to perfection.
One of the best-loved things that we’ve knit in our Sheeps and Peeps Farm Yarn is our Kelpie Shawl – pattern by Jared Flood. It was knit with size 7 needles. The main color is our beautiful Posiedon yarn and the contrasting stripes have been knit with our farm yarn – naturally-dyed with Beet leaves, Goldenrod, Hibiscus and Jewelweed.
It is a favorite at farm conferences and is just like wearing a big, warm sheepy hug!

The Mrs. Watson Shawl by Martina Behm shown in our Sheeps and Peeps Farm Millspun Yarn.
We love the way the middle sister changed up the pattern and used two colors of our hand-dyed yarn along with our natural flock yarn. Knit on size 8 needles, it is a little larger than the original pattern. It’s such a fun, happy shawl, and has quickly become a favorite now that the weather has turned cooler.
