twelfth night and the twelve knits of christmas

All the characters from ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas‘ were beautifully knitted and amusingly displayed by Trish in the window of Creations Wool Shop, Barnes, London SW13, using patterns found in ‘The Twelve Knits of Christmas’ by Fiona Goble.

sheep at the royal academy?

What would Sir Joshua Reynolds have thought? But it’s true. A small flock of Bowmont Merino sheep have been running circles round the statue of Reynolds in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts. They were brought here to celebrate the RA’s current exhibition, ‘Australia’, and the final weekend of Wool Week.

Umas ovelhas fofas na Royal Academy!
