Sheep Sweater

Still no signs of sheep in our barnyard. Thank goodness our neighbors to the rear have a flock for me to gape at. This guy is all alone in the pasture these days. His ewes are staying closer in to the farmer's barns for lambing.



For now I will just have to settle for a few sheep dancing around my shoulders on my (finally) finished sheep sweater. I started it a year and a half ago during my trip to Germany. It was hibernating for most of the time since then, but I am happy that I lured it out and got it done. The yarn is Sheppard's Wool and is so soft and warm. Most definitely something I will use again.
