Hot Off the Needles

I made this cute little knitted lamb while I was in NC. Well, I knitted it there, but assembled it last night when I got home. I used the Fuzzy Lamb Knitting Pattern by Barbara Prime. It was a little tricky at first, because I didn't know how to do many of the stitches, but Becky came to my rescue. It's good to have big sisters.

The lamb is going to be a gift for a cute little girl who's about to turn one in a few weeks. Her parents are friends of mine, and they own a sheep farm in the gorgeous North East Kingdom in Vermont. I hope she likes this!



The pattern said the lamb will be 8" tall, but mine is several inches taller. There are a few mistakes in mine of course, but nothing you can see. And the ears aren't really crooked, they just look like that in the picture.


I think the black yarn I used is Vanna's Choice (Becky let me use her black yarn), and the gray is yarn I've had for a while. It might be Lion Brand Homespun, but I don't really remember.
