I love the idea of a hand-knit sheep made with a hand-dyed natural wool, but that's as close as I'm likely to come to owning the real thing. Who wouldn’t love to have one of these little lambs of their very own? The pattern is simple and fun to follow, and because this sweet knitted lamb is fairly small, it won’t take long before you're finished! ]]>

I sometimes think that knitting projects are like that old saying--if it's not broken don't fix it--in that if you have a project that you've made successfully, why not just make it over and over and over again? Well, for one thing it completely destroys the surprise of opening a handmade gift made by you. And, let's face it-it can also be boring. I strongly advocate branching out and applying your knitting skills to new and beautiful things. ]]>
