I feel faint with all the amazing happenings. I don't even know where to begin. How wonderful that your tour was pointing out sheepy things to you. That is brilliant. The pics of the beautiful sheep, fleece, sheepherder, border collies, and then the yarn from the sheep at Cawdor Castle!!! Oh Steph...absolutely the best.

How amazing to have a chance to meet Margret Atwood! An opportunity of a lifetime for sure. Sorry to hear that you don't want that beautiful shawl to end. Maybe cast on another immediately, that way you don't lose that lovin' feeling. :)
