Crochet Sheep and other woolly business!



This is post three of today, and it just gets weirder!!
maybe if I explain, it will help.

My favourite yarn shop, Baa Ram Ewe, have decided to have a knitted nativity (a Knitivity, perhaps?) and I have offered to make a sheep. Of course to be different, mine is crocheted!!

I just hope it's the right size, I have photographed it on my hand to give some idea of size. I did not use a pattern to make this, but made it up as I went along, using the principles of amigurumi.

In other Baa Ram Ewe news, Verity has started selling kits to make my mug cosies, which apparently attract a lot of interest. How cool is that?
Verity sent me one of the kits. I love this wool!


And finally in knitting news. I have finally finished this waistcoat for MEEEEEEEE! I hardly ever make anything for myself so this was a real treat and I love it. knitted in Rowan Pure wool Aran, it's so snuggly to wear. (excuse the rubbish picture)
