Baa!

This little fella was made from a kit that I was given for my birthday. It is a Cornish organic wool loopy sheep and is very cute indeed. I decided not to give it the hat or scarf, as that would be unrealistic. It's summer and far too warm to be wearing scarves. The kit contains enough to make two sheep, so who knows, in another three weeks I might have managed to make it a friend. Or I might have started on the wonderful Alan Dart circus mice that have caught my eye in Simply Knitting magazine lately.

That sheep is fab! I agree about the clothing ... sheep down here don't wear hats anyway. :)

He rocks - lovely job. Why don't you get him to sort out the grass growing problem? Then you wouldn't have to mow the lawn.

Hee! So cute.

... Mice? MICE? I bet those'll be adorable.

What a lovely sheep! The loops really make him stand out, don't they?

He's lovely, definitely doesn't need any clothes, he is perfect as he is.

That's a very fine sheep! and I agree with you entirely about clothing. I was given an alpaca by a secret pal - he travelled all the way from the US wearing a ribbon. I tell you - he was emabarrassed!
That alan dart book caught my eye too. Had to be purchased. And I don't normally do toy knitting.
