Manx loaghtan project

For Christmas this year I'm knitting Brianna a pair of mittens with flowers on them,  so I need some green for the leaves and stems.  I got this from Amy King  at Spunky Eclectic a couple weeks ago at the NH Sheep and Wool festival.    
It's manx loaghtan, which is a sheep that has 4 horns,  they're pretty handsome. 

This was a 4 Oz pkg so it only took me a day and a half to spin and ply the whole thing up,  and just in time took because the breed study for June starts on Wednesday.
 
Next up targhee :)
