New Sock Yarn, and Sheep Puppet

My new base sock yarn, quickly dyed up in 'Flora' so I can have a go and see how it knits up. Lovely yarn, nice and silky feel, bouncy - should have lovely stitch definition. I think it would make gorgeous lace too.

And a couple of photos of the sheep puppet. [Rav link]. I think I shall have to make more - in fact I finished Mark's hooped socks this evening (but have not yet given them to him) and have cast on for another.
