Introducing Olaf...

DSC02882

Despite being named for a Viking warrior, Olaf has actually just popped over from New Zealand - probably about as far away from the old Norse homeland as is possible whilst still remaining Earthbound.

Here is Olaf in his longship:

Olaf has been having a lovely time helping me spin some more singles from that Merino Corriedale Cross that I got a few weeks ago.

We've already filled two bobbins which are now ready to be plied:

Olaf's arrival was kindly facilitated by Ashford-Migration-Agent-Extraordinaire Donni who can usually be found Indulging Her Inner Knitter.

That cheeky Olaf didn't take long to make himself at home! And look at those bobbins of beautifully spun yarn! Wonderful!
