What on earth is going on?

There’s quite a menagerie in the shop, and they get up to the whackiest antics! So when this sight greeted our eyes the other day, we were stumped – what on earth could be going on? Is Don José the Alpaca pretending to be a cat in a tree? Does Enzo the Sheep disapprove terribly or is he cheering from the sidelines?

So we decided that a caption contest was the best way of finding out, so over to you, our clever readers. Tell us what each little hooligan is saying and win two skeins of gorgeous Sulka Legato yarn! To enter, just post your answer in the comments below – and since there’s a Bank Holiday weekend coming up, we’re leaving entries open until midnight on Monday next, May 5th. What’s more, multiple entries aren’t just allowed, they’re positively encouraged!

And of course, we’ll wind up the Legato for you, once we’ve negotiated with Don José for access to the swift!
