Knitting Sheep

On our Whoduknit Group we are reading a book called Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann this month. It takes place in the Irish village of Glennkill, where a flock of sheep try to solve the murder of their shepherd, who has cared for them, reading them a plethora of books every night, which has made them far savvier about the workings of the human mind than your average sheep. It's a pretty strange book! Anyway, I've been searching for a project to go along with this book and came across this adorable knitting sheep that I had to share with you. It's a free pattern that I found on Ravelry, and just too cute! You can find it here. We also just completed a Mystery KAL. I'm naming this the "Tori" scarf because it was inspired my my granddaughter, who showed me a scarf that her friend had, and asked me to make her one like it. Here are the three I completed while working out the pattern. My snowmen are now nice and comfy warm.

This is just Scary! I had a scarf like that EONS ago. But mine didn't loop together. Much better your way.

Thanks for tagging me.
