Shetland . . .

...



This has made me smile for the past few days.  An ad campaign for Scotland promotes two of the Shetland Islands most famous icons:  Shetland Ponies, and exquisitely hand-knit Shetland sweaters (or more properly "jumpers").   The garments were created by Shetland knitter Doreen Brown, and really are works of art.

So adorable! Watching it, all I could think was 'I want a pony to knit sweaters for!'

Then I realized, that maybe I should try knitting a sweater for myself before trying something like that! Maybe I'll get a pygmy goat instead ;)
