FO: Family of sheep!

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!

All of them are adorable!! wWith the reverse stockinette the big ones look like they've just been sheared!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

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.
