Taa-Dah or should that be Baa Baa

Drum roll please, sheep / lamb is finished, inevitably I called him Shaun.
I gave him back to my friend yesterday and she was delighted. She had been given the kit as a gift at Christmas, but felt that parts of the pattern were beyond her knitting capabilities. So I had volunteered to knit Shaun up for her, he is about 8 inches high sitting down / 15 inches tall and his real name is Ewan. I would say that this kit is suitable for a knitter who has made at least a garment or socks. The kit is available from Jacquay Yaxley Designs, Yorkshire.

Aww How sweet is he? Well done, it looks cute.. Glad you had fun at the country living fair, I wish I was able to come but wouldnt have been able to get out of work. We are planning to go to the Christmas Fair, we are hoping to come over the weekend.

He's lovely :) Don't you find that fluffy stuff a nightmare to knit with? I used it for a monkey and may have come close to swearing once or twice!

Hi Jane, Ewan is lovely. This is a shot in the dark.... My mum is JacquaY Yaxley who designed him. I'm trying to get all her pattern out as PDF's online. I have been through all her computers, all her files but can't find the pattern for Ewan. I've got loads of photos of him. I know this will be a good will thing but any chance you could copy the pattern and email it too me. He is my favourite! I can prove I am who I say I am.
Kindest wishes
