Too cute

Check out what I made for Logan for Christmas! I think it is adorable. It is supposed to be a sheep, but I think the ears are a little long, but I still love it. He hasn't seen it yet, it isn't easy to make something for a child you are never apart from without them knowing what it is but I pulled it off!

That is the cutest animal I have ever seen. How did you ever make it without him seeing it?

That is so cute! I love it. We have friends that raise those kinds of bunnies. And the socks are awesome. I have been knitting, but really don't want to knit in the round, so I am gettin' me one of them :)
Love, Jessica

Mom - I'm not sure how I made it without him seeing it. He's been playing computer games a lot and the computer is in the other room so that has helped. I've also made a lot of hats so I think he just assumed that was what I was working on.

Jessica - The looms are awesome! Anything that is knit in the round is so easy on the loom and you can can do straight knitting on the round looms also.

darling! kinda makes you feel like a secret agent sneaking around like that doesn't it? well, maybe that's just me. anyhoo... love the sheep did you really make it on a knitting loom?

Knitmoka - I did feel like a secret agent sneaking around. A few times I had to make him close his eyes quickly while I put it away, so he knows I made him something special. It really was made on a loom, actually 2 looms, 1 for the body and 1 for the legs and head. It was really quick and easy to make.

Adorable! BTW, I made a pair of socks using the pattern you gave. They were easy! Thanks for the inspiration and info. :)

Super cute! It is hard to make things undercover. I have an alien in the works that has required stealthy moves on my part. I crocheted a small stuffed sheep as a child and my kids still play with him. Unfortunately I didn't know the difference between wool and acrylic when I was 7 or 8.

did you make up this pattern? please share it with us plebians!

Erikka - The pattern is on a Yahoo group I joined for Loom Knitting. The group is called kniftyknitterlooms, you'd have to join the group to see the pattern. The body was made on the blue loom and the head and legs were made on the flower loom. The only part that is tricky is the head, getting the ears right was some work.
