my felted sheep! it's a fiber trends felted flock sheep, patons merino wool, and she's stuffed full with old (but clean!:shifty:) socks (hence the 'more socks' title)

Nice job on the socks--I'll have to look at that tutorial and expand my knowledge some day, still using top-down on DPN's. Love that little sheep!

I LOVE the sheep in particular. I saw it's tail waggle! :)
That kind of item would be delightful for the pink ribbon activities etc too.

Beautiful socks! No way those are your first ever! I'm really impressed that you did the ML, 2-at-once, toe-up for your very first socks! :cheering: Way to go!

Great socks! I can see you are a "pink" person like me.

Love the sheep but am especially inlove with that darling hedgehog.
