FREE knitted sheep pattern for YOU!

May 9, 2012 | Blog, Competitions & Giveaways

You might think that I ONLY love to SEW toys…. but when I can’t get near my sewing machine,

I also like to KNIT!

So it’s NOT THAT strange that when I was first thinking about my

INSOMNIAC Teddy Bear pattern design, I wanted to make a KNITTING PATTERN for Izzy’s sleepy sheep. I thought it would be FUN for me to be able to knit some sheep while I was up with insomnia in the middle of the night – AND way less noisy than my sewing machine!!!

BUT, because I know that some people cannot knit, I designed her a cute sewn sheep instead and I was going to leave it like that,  BUT then,

      Hi Mick, I’m sorry, I wrote this post 10 years ago and I have forgotten where I bought it. Maybe you can ask at a local yarn store if they know the brand? 🙂
