FO: Family of sheep!
Hiya,

Over the last couple of months I've been practising my toy making skills and I've knitted 3 sheep! The ram was the first one, my embroidery skills weren't great but I got a little better with the ewe. Yesterday I made the tiny fluffy sheep, the kit came free with Lets Knit magazine it was a lovely quick knit

Let me know what you think, and if you can think of any ways I could improve!

Too cute!!! The only improvement I can think of is making a whole flock of them. The more the merrier. You want your sheep to be happy, I'm sure.

Those are just adorable and very well done! They're not easy to make work and you've done the whole family perfectly.
