Help ma kilt, it’s Ramsay MacSporran!


Piping in the Haggis 2014

At long last I can introduce you to Wee Ramsay. He was a long time coming, but for once I am actually quite pleased with how he turned out.  He ‘piped in the haggis’ at the family Burns Supper and finished the night off with a spot of dancing.

Our Wee Sheep was chuffed with his new Highland dress and particularly proud of his new sporran. This addition to the pattern was inspired by a St. Andrew’s Day dinner attended recently with my other half.  Lovely meal, lovely company and lot’s of lovely men in kilts, one of which was sporting a rather fetching sporran. (After some polite interrogation took place the wearer admitted his sporran was actually a childs back-pack.)

And the result of this evening out ……..was Ramsay and the ‘Heilan Coo’ sporran.

And, for those of you curious ladies (or gents) who are wondering “What does a Wee Black Faced Sheep wear under his kilt?”

The Perfect Undergarment

Did mention in my last post that our friend popped into Jamieson’s of Shetland on his way back from the North Pole? It appears that while our wee friend was in Lerwick he found the perfect undergarment….guaranteed to keep everything cosy and  completely under control!
