Ages and ages ago I knitted this sheep from the pattern on the Flutterby Patch blog. It’s taken me this long to get photos of it. This is such an easy and quick pattern that anyone with half an idea about knitting can make one.
So, anyway, this particular sheep is called Mary. One day Mary was out walking and came across the most beautiful felted rock and spiral basket. Mary wished that the rock was in the basket and hey presto, her wish was granted (she’s a magic sheep don’t you know).
Mary climbed on top of the rock to get a better view of the valley below. She smiled as she spotted some of her sheep friends frolicking through the fields. Mary wanted to get down to join them but she worried that she might slip and fall. Suddenly as if by magic (told you she’s a magic sheep) a pile of stones appeared.
Mary was overjoyed. She climbed down the stones…very carefully…
… and toddled off to meet her friends and tell them all about her mini adventure.
Mary says while you’re having a look at the pattern, check out the rest of the Flutterby Patch blog…it’s very uplifting.
