Me: "Matthew, you haven't bought me anything for my birthday have you?" Matthew: "No, why?" Noting the package that has just arrived.
Me: "Because you bought me birthday wool." * *slinks off to sip tea and inhale the ultimate sheepyness that is North Ronaldsay wool from A Yarn from North Ronaldsay.

Swipe to see the lovely note about the Post Office and fog - love this! 
Last year I bought yarn from Shilasdair on the Isle of Skye and wool from #birlinnyarncompany
from the Isle of Berneray. I think that I have inadvertently created a 'thing' whereby every birthday means a jumper quantity of yarn from an island somewhere. So far it has all been Scottish but next year I have my eye on some @janistarcroft Nash Island Tide, which comes from Maine.

North Ron last weekend with @ruth.craigie stunning views of the isles on the plane. Beautiful beaches and a very chilled island to visit. #northronaldsay #islandhopping #summerfun #sunseasand #beautiful #lovewhereyoulive #Orkney #nofilter
Finally maybe it to the most Northerly of the Orkney Islands. Definitely worth the 6hrs on a ferry

Day 23 of #30dayswild - North Ronaldsay sheep reluctant to jump out of the truck, soon changed their minds when they saw all the grass 🐑 #conservation #grazing #sheep #rarebreed #northronaldsay #wildlifetrust #wildlifetrustbcn
at about 10:30 last night, the sun set over the Seal Skerries

soon after (in the sky opposite), the shadow cast by the earth, showed up as a low blue band in the evening haze

Everyday #NorthRonaldsay: As we stayed two weeks there, we mainly used the kitchen. The sink was directly beneath the window: you could see neighbours, sea gulls, sheep, clouds, visitors and so on. So we named it the gossip bowl. Now these shells remember us about this as they are near our sink in Berlin.

First time I’ve ever found a complete urchin shell 👍
And didn’t realise the skull still had an eyeball until looking at the photo when home 😱

What better way to switch back to North Ronaldsay photos than by sharing these beautiful mallimaks 😍
There aren’t really any cliffs on North Ron, so these individuals have improvised by setting up home on the pier

So yesterday I hopped on the ferry and spent a very foggy day in North Ronaldsay, Orkney’s most northern isle. This is the furthest North I have been yet! .

They have a bit of a reputation for dive bombing, but I love them 😍 Such beautiful flyers

Everyday #northronaldsay: located in the middle of the island Loch Hooking is a great spot for bird watchers. There is a rotten observation hut. Unfortunately the climate and missing financial coverage for operation and service did their job quite reliable.

The old beacon on North Ronaldsay.
Built in the 1780’s, it was only the 3rd lighthouse built in Scotland by the Northern Lighthouse Board.

Unwinding this skein the ‘old fashioned’ way - there’s something quite lovely about a hand wound ball of wool. It’s not as neat and well behaved as a yarn cake - it has the tendency to escape your lap and dart around the floor like an excitable pup BUT it does fit snug whilst grasped in the hand and when you give it that squeeze...well, it’s just that drug that keeps you knitting! Wool :: #northronaldsay 2ply hand dyed by Prim-Peacock - it’s not got a colourway name but I imagine it’s inspired by the seaweed/grass that the local sheep eat?! Wool picked up last Summer from AYarn in #kirkwell #orkney (oh, I can’t wait to return). This wool is going to become part of my #rhidorrochhat by @flutterbyknits - I need a little hat project to take to the Coast and break up all this shawl knitting I’ve gotten into. // #whatsonmyneedles #knittersofinstagram #knittingaddict #ilovewool #iloveknitting #knittersofravelry #knittingproject

Pickie terno

I always struggle when it comes to telling arctic terns and common terns apart.. Thankfully in Orkney they’re both called pickie ternos! Makes it much easier 😂 (Think this is an Arctic tern Though?)
